Is the ammo really Condor safe? I guess you'll have to shoot one and find out.........I'm Kidding! :)


I already bought the exact same thing for pig hunting...haven't tried it yet though, post pics when you do!

Barnes X bullets are on the CA Condor safe list so it should be OK.

I'd be careful about hunting condors with a 7.62x39. Personally, I'd prefer something a little bigger to ensure a clean kill.

appreciate the advice, i haven't actually been yet but well be close and i don't want to over penetrate and hit one of the dogs (if we even find a pig)

Barnes bullets do the job.

The copper bullets at close range will pass clean through a fair size pig. They retain mass and cut really well, but at the expense of maximum wound channel size.

Huh? Have you ever seen a Barnes bullet after it hit something? They are made to expand so well that many African big game hunters use them by choice.

they expand on heavy mass but light skin animals don't have enough mass for them.Pigs are thick so it should do good. I had good experience with nosler e tip non lead.
