Decided to sit out Saturday night since it's been a while. Got to the blind about 8:30 and around 9 a group of 2 sows and about a dozen piglets showed up at one of the feeders. I picked the biggest sow, took the shot and watched the group scatter in all directions. She took off to the left with a couple of piglets with her, then about 30 seconds later the piglets came back without her and went after the others. So I'm pretty sure I got her but I wasn't wading around through the waist-deep grass looking. When I pull the video I'll see if the shot was where I thought it was at the time.
About 30 minutes later a good-sized boar shows up under the same feeder and I nailed him and he went straight down. Then around 10 another, smaller boar showed up at the opposite end of the field and down he went. When I went to drag the first one off with the 4-wheeler I could tell he was a nice one. When I got them laid out next to each other he was almost twice as thick as the second one.
I'll add the videos when i get them offloaded.

6.8 SPC- the factory Hornady loads with the 120 grain SST bullet. So far I've taken about 70 hogs with that caliber/load, and I'm a believer.
