This is what became of the Last two Sow Feral Pigs we ate them for Easter Dinner I must say the hickory smoked Ribs Racks were good .


This is my 50th Anniversary Ruger 10 /22 Rifle its a tack driver with the CCI Velocitor 40 grain copper plated Hollow Point at 1435 FPS and in the Browning & Winchester offering with a Velocity of 1435 FPS Makes them the fastest 40 grain Copper Plated Hollow Points at 1435 FPS all three offerings shoot the same out of both my Ruger 10 /22 Rifles with the groups touching one another. The Primary Arms 1x4 scope has a red fire dot in the center of the cross hairs.



I have killed well over 150 Hogs since last August of 2020 with my Ruger 10 /22 Rifle some tipping the scale at well over 400 pounds .




These Pigs were hanging around the water hole yesterday so I decided to take a walk down to the water hole Today with my Ruger 10/22 in hand and I ran out 2 Red & Black Shoats Feral Hogs One Boar & One Sow I took aim at the Sow from 50 yards and I put a CCI Velocitor 40 grain copper plated Hollow Point 1435 FPS between Her eyes the boar ran back into the thicket the Sow dropped like a stone. The CCI Velocitor is my favorite .22 LR ammo , But I also favor the Browning & Winchester of the same exact loading ,all three have a Velocity of 1435 FPS these three Loadings I found to be the Fastest 40 grain Copper Plated Hollow Points on the Market they hit very hard and penetrate very deep and leave a Nice big wound channel .I have killed coyotes at 100 yards with this ammo with a shoulder shot exit wounds was the size of a Nickle see Black Coyote photo below .





This Little Sow became 25 Pounds of Southern Mild sweet Sausage this has been Donated to a Needy Man Locally .



This Black Coyote was killed at 100 yards with a Ruger 10 /22 rifle firing a CCI Velocitor 40 Grain copper plated hollow point at 1435 FPS the bullet exited the shoulder leaving a large exit wound going through both shoulders and heart dropping it in its tracks.

Man, this is really great stuff. Nice work.
Thank You
Just goes to show you never under estimate the power of the .22 LR . It puts them down without a problem shot placement is what its all about ,I am going to take one with a .22 caliber Benjamín Prowler Air Rifle if I can get with in 45 yards for a Head Shot into it's brain pan . My friend Brian Quacka AKA Pig Mam killed a Hog with a 177 caliber Gamo Air Rifle . Again shot placement is everything .
