View Full Version : .243 Winchester on Hog

I just wanted to share a little post mortem report on a 100 pound razorback hog. I found it interesting because this rifle is new and this is the first game animal I've taken with it. Rifle is a Stevens 200 in .243, cartridges: Federal Power Shok 80 gr. soft point. Hog presented himself at about 10 yards broadside. The bullet entered above the right shoulder and broke the spine. There was an exit wound was in the same place over the left shoulder. The hog expired within a couple of seconds. Upon skinning, I noticed that many bone fragments had been projected through vitals and meat. the shoulder near the entry point was very damaged and there was lots of internal bleeding. I was quite surprised by this as the bullet seems to have stayed together. At least I couldn't find any fragments.

My nephew hit a deer at the top of the pelvis with a Fed Powershock in .270 WIN..... from about 100 yards. Deer went down but was not out.....

....we found the bullet jacket under the hide on the far side of the deer. There was an exit wound and no sign of the bullet core.
