    The reason so many people lose hogs is they don't understand the anatomy. Cntray to popular belief, they don't have an armor plate otherwise we'd be cutting them out and wearing them in our plate carrier! The problem is when we take the same shot we would on deer, we miss the majority of the vitals.

    Below the shoulder by the elbow is a v shape area with access to the body. This is the ideal shot from a very alight rearward angle (hog facing ever so slightly away). This will get through the lungs and drop them pretty quick. Miss the vitals and they run off. The problem is they're bristly dark hair is usually caked with dirt so we don't see this area very well.

    I prefer to put a bullet behind the ear, but from a moving truck on running hogs, it's not always that easy. A good shoulder shot can take them down but hogs can push through what a lot of other animals couldn't.

    We can use a 300 wsm, but a miss is a miss.

    Head shot from about 20 yards with Black Hills 50gr TSX. This is the entry wound. The exit opened a flap of skull on the other side. For the record, this guy went down with a few of his friends. He was running at full speed and I took him on the first shot from a truck bouncing through a field at about 15 mph. Good stuff.

    Some guys I know hunt hogs with knives & spears; while I think I prefer to keep my distance.

    I've killed a hog last year with my Ruger Speed Six at about 18 yards with a shoulder hit. I used a 180 gr HC Buffalo Bore, that I bought for backpacking in Black Bear country.

    Nice videos, and that was some good shooting at fast moving targets. (I only watched the first two vids)

    What brand and what are the specs of the 9mm bullet you used? Thanks!

    You didn't state this, but I presume the 50 gr TSX is a 5.56 cal???

    Yes, the Black Hills 50gr TSX is 5.56. It's also a different bullet than the 50gr TSX that's available separately for reloading. The 70gr TSX is a little better choice for hunting, but both are superb choices. I ordered a few boxes of that SSA from the link you sent me that day. Hopefully it gets here soon.

    The 9mm's in the pic.....

    Can't wait to see how the 70gr GMX does on the hogs!

    Hornady 55gr left, Hornady 70gr GMX right:


    Jon gets credit for these pics, but this was a ~80lb (maybe 100lb?) one I hit on the run (my first kill of the night I think?) with 50gr TSX out of a 14.5. Not quite the push through we see with Jon's pic, but it dropped quick nonetheless.

    Entry

    I think he was a bit heavier than 80 to 100. Maybe 120... That entry from the 50gr in my earlier pic isn't typical, but the wound channel is always decent.

    I tried to get that hog just the week before but he was running into a wooded area when I saw him.

    I'm looking forward to comparing the 70gr TSX to the 70gr GMX and 115gr TSX Black Tip next month.

    I just love to watch those guys who can work quick and accurate multiple shots from a bolt action! It makes me a little jealous because I know I do not poses that skill at that level. Then I remind myself that, at least for now, the Second Amendment means I don't have to because I own semi-auto moden sporting rifles!

    Unless it's changed recently in FL, feral hogs on public land (state) are controlled by season; those on private land are considered property of the landowner and can do as the landowner sees fit.

    Me too! Thanks to Jon for putting me on to the 70 gn. I found and bought some 70 gn and 62 gn rounds too. I hope I get a chance to try them!

    With respect sir... that's not how it works. The expanding wound cavity and fragments from the projectile or internal structure (bones, for example) can propagate further injury, but the "shock wave" does not. The bullet simply doesn't generate enough of a shock wave for that to occur; certainly not enough to cause injury to the brain.

    Yes. I agree. When the Community Organizer confiscates all those evil semi-automatic rifles from everyone (not me, I lost mine in that tragic DC charter), I suppose I'll have to take Gunnery Sergeant Hartman's basic bolt action rifle course, so I can go on slotting hogs.

    Those darn videos have me ready to pack my stuff for another hunting trip! I guess I have a few months to wait before I can get back to Tejas for another go at them.
