Yesterday evening me and my buddy luke found some East TX pineywood rooters. The boar weighed 200 and the sow about 120 or so(she had 6 pigs in her)...management [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] , both taken w/ a 7RUM, 168 gr. SMK, 94 gr. Retumbo (load data is not mine got it from 7RUMloader) and this load shoots extremely well out to 800.
I thought w/ the recent post about the SMK i would test it on the armour plate of a boar hog. It went thought the front shoulder and lodged into the ribs of the opposite side. From "my experience" of shooting hogs it is best to shoot a boar behind the shoulder to eliminate hitting the armour plate. I have seen many shots on hogs 125+ in the shoulder and most result in a broken shoulder and a pissed off hog, most bullets only penetrate 1-3 inches on a thick plate. I am totally convinced that in "my rig" this will be the bullet i will hunt with. here is a pic of the recovered bullet it weighed 31.1/168 gr.
I would like to thank those that have helped me...I am very appreciative for your time and patience.
