First three hogs were from a sounder and the fourth was a trailing boar on another sounder. The TX15 rifle from Lone Star Armory continues to sing. The AR Hybrid OTM bullets are a bit questionable.

I tore up my wrist lifting the 195 lb sow, so the necropsies pretty much ended at that point save for getting the bullet fragments out of the last hog.

I always thought Berger bullets were designed to frag and dump all their energy into the animal.

Thanks to your real world tests we get to see how they really do.

Nice video!

The Berger Hunting bullets are, at least some of them are. The OTMs are part of their 'tactical' line of bullets, supposed designed to fit into magazines (on reference I found) and with a thicker jacket to withstand the build up of heat in a barrel with can damage bullets (so was claimed). Either way, not great.
