Late last night I dropped a sow at least 250 lbs. in her tracks at about 140 yds. As I started to take off the hind legs, I noticed a lump in the middle of her shoulder. I made a cut and pulled out the remainder of a 123 SST bullet I shoot out of my 6.5 Grendel. It penetrated completely through both shoulders and came to rest just under the skin on the one side. I weighed it today, and it still weighed 95.8 grains...which I didn't think was too bad after driving through both shoulders.

Yeah, that looks good. Somewhere around 225, I find they have trouble getting through both sides, but sometimes they still do on the bigger hogs.

SST is an excellent Grendel bullet.

I always find it interesting to see recovered bullets. Looks like that SST is working well for you.

Keep After 'Em!

I don't see a lot of these bullets exiting, but I like to shoot them from middle of the shoulder and forward. They sure seem to drop them right on the spot though. Must be doing some good damage to the CNS. I shot one deer last year right through the top of the neck with a Creedmore round using the same 123 SST. The processor mentioned to me how much damage to the surrounding tissue was done in that neck area.
