Default Boar Hog Killed With 300 Grain XTP

Killed a pretty good boar this evening.

Range: About 60 yards
Attitude: Broadside

Gun: CVA Stag Horn
Scope: Weaver 3X10X40 Grand Slam (Set on 4X)
Bullet: 300 grain .430 XTP
Sabot: Green Crush Rib
Powder: 90 grains of 3F Goex Pinnacle
Primer: Winchester Shotgun

Was sitting in a blind overlooking a feeder. This hog came in well after sunset. Waited for a good broadside pose and aimed for a high shoulder shot. At the shot the hog fell and never kicked. The bullet did exit leaving a good sized hole.

This hog probably has some Eurasian boar blood as indicated by the red coloring. He was also defective: He had only one testicle.

Amazing... that is a heck of a hog. That is so cool. I was wondering how well that 300 grain would plant a hog. That is the bullet I like to shoot. And out of my Staghorn it is super accurate. Congratulations on the hog. Nice harvest there.

So the wound channel from that 300 grain was real good. A big hole going out. That sounds like what I want to shoot. Thanks for testing that bullet. Now go shoot another one...

Did the picture open for you ?

I have been using this bullet for years on deer. I have taken more deer with it and I love it. I normally shoot it in my NEF Sidekick using 85 grs of Pyrodex RS.

I always knew it was a great bullet.

Oh yeah, great harvest there Falcon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How bad did it stink???
