I did , more than a few shot that way. 180gr hardcast at 1150fps turned out to be my standard load over the years and it can easily break one maybe both shoulders depending on size. 200lbers it should pass thru. It will at least bore throught to the far side shoulder. If you hand load step the loads up to 1400fps and bore through both side. Recovery between shots does tend to slow down with the hotter loads. I used a 8" DW revolver for 20 years as my go to hog getter. I also slowed my loads to 1150fps . Speer still has a 170gr sp that worked very well too at 1300fps. Never tried any 200gr.

heres a great page to give some insigt to hoter loads-
