For hogs, I follow this guys advice as they are a bit different than a deer; both physically and the fact that they are always in motion. The latter is interesting as I've been with a bunch of first-time hog hunters waiting for them to shoot and say "shoot." Their reply is always "he won't stop moving." I've already briefed them on this and just reply "shoot."

none at at least 200 yds, the farthest i have shot this at targets. 2" high at 100, 8 " low at 200. i do not believe the 2050 fps on the box, but it is much faster than the winchester loading. i need to chronograph this load, i will post the real velocity out of my 20" barrel.
