It started to rain right at dark last night. I chased this large group of hogs in tithe rain from feeder to feeder. I finally caught up with them. I shot the larger one first with a new 6.8 round for me. The 105gr MKZ Cavity Back Bullets did an excellent job. She didn’t drop but she only went 10 yards (shot placement issue) with a crazy large blood trail. The smaller one stopped too long and I dropped it in a pool of blood. I really wanted the 120gr rounds they just started selling but the 105s worked great!

Great work, keep us posted on future activity with those rounds.

Good job. 6.8 is an excellent cartridge for hogs.

Ought to be able to push 105 pretty good in a 6.8. Sounds like a great compromise between the 90s and the 115-120 class.
