    Any of you running 300 blackout for hogs? I’ve been running the 130 grain barnes tsx and it’s done ok. Just not seeing a lot of expansion or full penetration. Normally don’t want to find the bullet and prefer a bigger hole. This weekend had a quartering to shot that made it through the shoulder blade and then stuck in gristle plate on the off shoulder ( factory ammo ). I get that it’s a slow poke, just was expecting consistent pass through and more expansion. Anyone found anything better? Staying away from 556 just seen too many issues with it on pigs. Trying to recover them, all the ones that I shoot I donate if my freezer is full. My shots are all under 200 yds, at night and after they are usually hauling ass after the first shot goes.
