And like the man says, hogs, especially upwards of 200lbs or more, are equipped with a "shield" of gristle, which encircles the heart, shoulder area, and it takes a tough bullet to penetrate and cause enough damage to kill..I've butchered hogs that had old bullets and cavities that had healed and not done the job...the shield deflects like a skull, and you have to put enough damage behind it in the right spot, to kill cleanly.
I use the Nosler partition, in 100 gr., and it does the job, consistently...but don't expect 3100...and you really don't need it, just a good bullet in the right spot! Try the Partition in 90 gn. for deer, it's a good one too!
