I agree fully with you about the penetration power of a bullet. So a 200 grs bullet of a 8x57 IS Mauser with a stout load brings 2900 ftlps at the muzzle and at 100 yds about 2300 ftlps. I think that is enough to bring every hog down.
That sounds like a potent load!! It will definitely take any hog on the planet!
Is that the same as the K98 German Mauser of WW II? That is a lot of gun. You could stack hogs up and kill 8 or 9 at a time ! get them all lined up in a pretty little row and WHAM!!!!!!!!!! Pork chops ala-everywhere !!!!!!!!!
