I killed a big old nasty boar on December 31st at the club. He was 300lbs easy. When he came out, he didn't stay still long enough to line up a headshot so I opted for a spine shot. Killed it dead at 120yds with a 165grn BT from my .308. Upon skinning the pig we found 2 .243 bullets fully mushroomed and 5 00 buckshot pellets in his shields, those shields were fully 1 1/2" thick or more. My bullet had penetrated the shield and hit the spine but didn't go any further. I would have taken the headshot over that shoulder shot any day of the week, just glad I had opted for the heavier bullet that evening. That was one rank pig.
