If I brought you some crappy steel case ammo , would it be possible for you to duplicate performance with decent handload ? First couple shots at pigs are high percentage, running wide open in every direction not as much . Could you load something that could be used for first couple shots, that could be followed up by the steel case junk , and still have roughly same poi? I hope what I’m asking makes sense . Thanks

Are you firing that many rounds at running pigs that the economic cost of a hunting bullet is prohibitive?

Ok, I think I understand the question. I need to know what bullet you are running in the steel cased ammo. I'm assuming 308 Win, or 7.62x51 ammo? Maybe 223/5.56?

Yes, I have a few thousand of these loaded up now. 165 grain Sierra Game King soft point boat tail bullet. It should be very close.

To answer the earlier question about shooting enough to be cost prohibitive. Yes. I order the steel case crap 2k rounds at a time . It’s $0.40/rnd. You get what you pay for, it sucks. But it goes bang. Lots of shots are low percentage, running away ect. They still die, just never find them . Figure if better ammo for first couple, even if they’re just center mass, we’ll still recover more. Which keep the buzzards out more, which keeps them away from calves ect.
