piggly wiggly

I use either a 7x30 Waters or a 357 Maximum.
The 7x30 uses a 139gr jacketed Hornady TTSX and the maximum uses a 180 hard cast lead flat point.

Shot placement is the key to success. A shoulder shot will bring the pig down with little meat destruction.

IMO: It ain't about snipinig the hog from afar. i prefer patched round balls. i like to sneak up and put the ball in the hogs ear. s

TTSX is Barnes; SST, CX, and Interbond are Hornady.

No, the hogs were never in the trap. There are hog traps all over my hunting property. Yep. i do shoot hogs in traps and drag them out. Otherwise, the coyotes can't get at the carcasses.
