I chased this large group of hogs in tithe rain from feeder to feeder. I finally caught up with them. I shot the larger one first with a new 6.8 round for me. The 105gr MKZ Cavity Back Bullets did an excellent job. She didn’t drop but she only went 10 yards (shot placement issue) with a crazy large blood trail. The smaller one stopped too long and I dropped it in a pool of blood. I really wanted the 120gr rounds they just started selling but the 105s worked great!

    Good hogs down! Bullets seem to be performing well.

    I just bought some 120’s. I’m excited to put them to the test.
