This sow appears to be hit way too far back. She was quartering away at a good angle at about 50 yards distance. The sow was shot with a Hornady 240 grain .430 XTP handgun bullet leaving the muzzle of my .50 CVA muzzleloader at 1,850 fps. The liver was torn up, the diaphragm shredded and one lung was turned to jello. The bullet missed the heart and did not exit.

i will never forget that hog. At the shot she went about four feet straight up in the air, came down with her nose pointed down. She left the ground two or three more times and lay then still. All i could think of was the description Carlos Hathcock gave of the Cobra sniper he shot in the eye through the snipers rifle scope.
