    ALMOST makes me wish we had hog hunting, but not really. How many and where did they land out of the carbine? Which bullets?

    I'm sitting in a 10 foot tripod overlooking a small tank (pond) and deer feeder. The first hog walks out about 5:30pm and I shoot him behind the shoulder with the .30 carbine at around 15 yards, he turns and runs so I shot him again from the other side before he hits the brush but the second shot was unnecessary.

    Ammo used was Remington 110gr. soft points. First bullet entered behind right shoulder, passed through body cavity and stopped under gristle plate behind left shoulder. Lead core and jacket separated but were recovered right on top of each other.

    View of left rib cage and under arm were bullet passed.

    Bullet under hide. Notice thickness of the gristle under the skin.

    Second shot entered left side mid body and was found under hide on right side of body. Bullet held together.

    Second hog came out just before dark. He milled around the feeder until giving me a broadside shot with the Glock 20 and .40S&W barrel at about 15 or 20 yards. Ammo used was Winchester (FBI) white box 180gr. bonded jacketed hollow point. Bullet entered behind right shoulder, passed through body cavity and was found under left side gristle shield.

    View of left rib cage and under left shoulder were bullet passed. Notice not as much blood as first pig.

    Bullet under gristle.

    Bullet core and jacket on left are from first .30 carbine shot and bullet on right is second .30 carbine from same pig. The bullet in the middle is .40cal.

    Very nice!

    Don't guess you looked at the organs and the damage caused to them?

    Good to see you doing your bit to keep the population down. Looks like some nice bacon..............
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
