It's basically a 30-30 round and overkill is the name of the game with hogs (for most people IMO) I do use that exact round out of my SKS sometimes, it does the job. I also like the Herter's Soft Point, they both are killers. Cool video, thanks!

If you like Chittlins, Then this head will need a maganet, Every 7.62x39 Wolf HP bullet I tryed to recover at the range was shreaded into fragments, I looked for a couple of the soft points in the back bank an found they somewhat mushroomed but were in better whole condition than the HP, The HP will bring them down with a massive wound track, That is for shur. My 1/4 cents worth of Opinion, Now Id like to try a few of the Hertze's ( Clayjunky ) mentioned. For now the nerve damage in my neck doesnt allow me to enjoy the ole 30-30 rd, seems to have more recoil than the sks,,, ole carver

$4.29 a box, I ordered a ton of this stuff a few months ago, it's deadly.
