Way less performance than a .204, for sure. I'm dubious about penetration on something like a hog. Slaughter in a pen is nothing at all like hunting in the field.

From Wikipedia:

Ballistic performance

Bullet weight/type Velocity Energy
23 gr (1 g) SS90 AP FMJ 850 m/s (2,800 ft/s) 540 J (400 ft·lbf)

31 gr (2 g) SS190 AP FMJ 716 m/s (2,350 ft/s) 534 J (394 ft·lbf)

28 gr (2 g) SS195LF JHP 716 m/s (2,350 ft/s) 467 J (344 ft·lbf)

Test barrel length: 263 mm (10.35 in)

Source(s): The Encyclopedia of Handheld Weapons

Data I've seen for handguns shows a muzzle velocity just under 2,000 ft/sec. I will say that the pistol is fun to shoot, and groups quite nicely.
