Graphic indeed!
Kinda looks like a Van Gogh painting, or maybe a self-portrait after he whacked his ear off!

That DEFINITELY left a mark Ö

Good hog down. Go get another one. banana


You can never have too much ammo ó unless you're swimming.

I have to credit DNS for his work with 6.5 Grendel, specifically the 90 grain TNT loads. I've hunted alongside and with Grendel for about 5+ years and I pretty much figured 120 - 125 grain was the optimum weight for hog hunting. I never imagined the lightweight 90 grainer would be so darn effective against pigs, especially BIG PIGS - if you haven't been following his hunting with this factory round, go to YouTube and search Carpe SUS and watch the last year of videos.

So about 2 months ago, after extreme disappointment with Grendel and the 120 grain GoldDot bullets I decided to try a similar experiment with 308 Win, specifically looking to shoot a lightweight varmint round at high velocity. There were a couple of options and I selected the Nosler 110 grain due to its flat base design and reviews posted on various sights about its accuracy and effectiveness.

I have the AR-10 shooting these bullets into SCARY tight groups @ 3050 FPS ( 2273 ft/lbs of Energy )

I setup hunting from the truck on an area of our property that has some significant game trail traffic, trickled corn from the trail to an open area and hand spread corn and some pig dust additive. An hour after dark a lone boar showed up:

Post Shot Necropsy:

Boar as found laying:

Scale weighed in at 200 lbs

Entry Hole:

[Linked Image]

Hide pulled back to expose Entry Wound Tract

[Linked Image]

Exploring Entry Wound - able to insert three full fingers

[Linked Image]

Further cutting away damaged muscle/tissue digging towards the spine

[Linked Image]

Wound Tract opened to baseball size just before the spine area

[Linked Image]

Spine was not severed but found broken (I believe the base of the bullet fused to spine) - I couldn't recover it

[Linked Image]

There wasn't much damage to the offside, most damage was 2" around spine/neck area

[Linked Image]

Opening up the neck completely it is easy to see that the varmint bullet destroyed the first 6 - 9 inches of the hog
