    I took this Pig at 350 yards with my 300 Win shooting 180 grain TSX bullets. The Pig was quartering toward me and the bullet hit the ribs at the shoulder junction and simply removed them and opened this guy up big time.

    Saves trouble if you forget your knife.

    I gotta ask. What did it weigh? (estimated is O.K.)

    Not much meat on them that's for sure. I didn't take a pig until the last day of the hunt. I saw a lot of pigs, just no decent opportunity for a shot.
    Believe it or not, but this tough little pig got up when I was walking over to him and ran off. The most amazing part is that there was NO blood trail at all, simply amazing to say the least.

    there tough thats for sure i shot one at 25 yds one time with a 7 mag in the shoulder it fell right there i sat the rifle down after waiting a few minutes i walked over to it and he jumped and high taled it out of there and not a drop of blood looked for buzzard the next two days but never found him so he might still be out there. my buddys girl friend shot one and it ran off about two weeks later he shot the same hog and it had one lung that was all infected from the first shot two weeks earlier
