Default Killed Boar With Patched Round Ball: Bang Flop

Range: 40 yards
Attitude: Facing
Rifle: TC New Englander .50 caliber
Bullet: Patched round ball
Powder: 80 grains of Black MZ
Cap: CCI #11

Got into the blind at about 16:30. Napped a little. Looked up at 17:30; there was a sow and nine 15 pound pigs under the feeder. Was waiting for the sow to present a broadside shot when the boar came in. Boar tried to hassle the pigs from the corn. He turned facing me with his head up. At the shot the boar bang flopped and did not kick.

Hog weighed 200-225 pounds.

Yes,

The hogs head was up when shot. Ball entered the snout and exited behind the right ear.
