Default Tried out the 6.8 hog DRT

Took out my 6.8 for the first time last night . 14.5 SS barrel, barnesTTSX 95gr. 80 yards shot. Pig was looking straight at me, took the bullet just to the left of center above the eye, went through the upper scapula. Bullet was just under the plate.

I love my 6.8s. Have 3 of them and they kill pigs very nicely. I load a 110g TSX. Anything inside 300 yds is a done deal.
