Re: 175gr MKs vs. Wild Pigs

I use to manage a substantial amount of citrus acres in FL with serious hog problems. I always shot them in the head with a 223 and drop them in their tracks. The only ones that ran were then ones I shot running and they just did a nose plow into the ground which was the result of their forward momentum. Same results no matter the yardage.

Very little blood trail, no tracking and no wasted meat...........unless you know how to make hog head cheese. LOL

Re: 175gr MKs vs. Wild Pigs

No pigs to shoot at up here, but I have used the 200 grn MK's on deer, and they were dead before they hit the ground.

Thanks for sharing the hunt/pics, congrats on the hunt!
