Yet another 308 boar.

Yet another 308 bullet test subject. I believe no 11. He was a stout one. Heart girth measurement was 47". Puts him in the 270 pound range. Both the farmer and me had game cam photos of a lone boar during the wee hours of the night. He got into the freshly planted peanuts after it quit raining around 3:30 am Friday morning. Setup Friday night on the peanut field and watched deer all night. Then just a little after midnight he finally shows. Closed the distance then he started heading my way. Popped him at 112 yards. DRT.

PS: I will be loading 6.8 spcii real soon now. lol

A perfect picture of what a hog can do in a short amount of time to destroy crops. Did the farmer pay you?

It's a prototype 308 cal a buddy gave me to test on hogs. ........In my estimation they are the Hammer of Thor on hogs.
Almost any bullet can make an effective neck/spine shot. If this new bullet is a Hammer of Thor on hogs, then give it a true test of capabilities. A Texas Heart shot will be more defining of the title.
