I don`t know the speed of a 300gr JFP bullet from factory loaded 460 S&W ammo is but I do know if you double lung a boar at 50yds the results are impressive. The blood spray was a show in itself. The damage to the lungs was not a severe as what a hollow point would make but it was more then I what I`ve seen when shooting a JFP at 44 mag or hot 45 Colt velocities. Speed matters.....

Very impressive, James! Congrats on another fine pig. I hope your FA .454 doesn't see this picture, otherwise you may have some explaining to do...

The blood on the ground makes it look like it triggered a claymore!

Nice one, James!


It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger squeeze.

JAMES: HAVE YOU EVER MET OR HUNTED WITH THE PIGMAN? AS BIG A PEST AT FERAL HOGS CAN BE THEY OFFER YEAR ROUND SHOOTING AND MOST MAKE EXCELLENT TABLE FARE.

Rey, I never met the man but after asking a number of hunters about him I found there are more people who like him then dislike him....

Nice shooting James & a great hog! Were you using those 3 step bullets again? Couldn't have went too far, you wrecked everything in there.

Large caliber - full penetration through both lungs gets em every time! Nice one James!

When you let the air out of them like that it?s a winner.
