    This is the result of a 500 grain bullet hit a wild pig at around 26 meters.
    Do you think it’s up to the task?

    Was it a 570 grain bullet?

    .500NE is a good boar hammer.

    It was a Woodleigh 570 grain. I feel it’s “adequate” for the task.

    Interesting point is that 10 out of 10 phs (Australia) all use Woodleigh soft points for shooting buffalo.

    Yeah I think you'll have to step it up to at least a .577NE. Let me see if I can reconstruct what happened here. That 1.5oz. slug didn't even make it past the hide, then the pig ran into the thick scrub, tripped over a pile of rusty bayonets left there by some careless ex-Gallipoli veteran as it ran for cover. A nearby wallaby, standing on the pile and seeing this, scrambled in the opposite direction and in the process, its powerful kick thrust a mass of bayonets toward the pig, gutting him and starting a Tetanus infection which killed him. That was my analysis of that picture anyway... :whistle:. Of course, my degree is in engineering, not forensic science. Nice Shot! (y) .500 NE is on my wish list, but then my LGS just got in a Craig boddington Ruger No.1 in .450NE 3.25" :mad: I don't have room for all these guns!
