Re: HOG vs. .308 WIN
Feral hogs or Russians?
I've shot hogs in Texas a few times and I initially used the double-lung shot but have switched to the shoulder. I've shot a few through the lungs and the round actually blew fat and pieces of bone out of the critter and the things run off and disappear. The Russians are VERY TOUGH and seem to tolerate lung shots very well. Shoulder shots are pretty good and anchor them quite well but there is generally some flopping involved. I just came back from a trip and the fella with me shot some, he was truly amazed at the toughness of those hogs. Hogs don't seem to bleed well, I guess the fat clogs the exit wound. The only shot I take now is the standard, dangerous game, shoulder shot (on adult hogs).
