Re: Heading to Georgia for a feral hog hunt.

Dave, did you take the hog with the .308 or the .300WM? Bullet recovered or passthrough?

Also what is the mv of the .300WM Black Hills SMK190 load and your barrel length?

Thanks.

Rick

I use the 308 with Fed GMM 168's. The bullet passed through [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img], the shot was hard quartering away from the right side, entered behind the right ribs (guts) and exited the left shoulder low (armpit). Took out a lot of groceries, lung, and arteries close to the heart. The hog went about 40 yards and was initially shot at a distance of about 30 yards.

I haven't run the BH 190's over a chronograph, probably wont as it's a factory rifle and I'm trying to decide what to do with it, probably end up trading it or selling.

Ruff,
Ten shots through my Sako 75 averaged 2901 with the Black Hills .300 Win mag 190's. That is a factory barrel, about 24". Very accurate ammo, sub 0.5" if you have a decent rifle.

Dave, I have not yet recovered a 190 from my WSM. The only hog to stop one was facing me and the shot made it to the gastric cavity. Bullet recovery would have been interupted several times for upchucking.

My next quest is feral hog with 180 gr Ballistic Tips because someone told me they are not up to the task. If I am told paint is wet and it does not seem possible, well I have to touch it.

Ian,thanks for the info. I wanted to guage my WSM's 2964 fps ES 11 fps from it's 26" Mike Rock tube. I am well aware of the potental of BH ammo and knew it is a good measure of my WSM load.
