  • Winchester Razorback XT

    just read about this in a hog hunting mag, wish I could find a link for the article. looks to be a new design of bullet and sounds interesting. in the article they had several shots that killed two hogs, thats some serious penetration. the author even speculated it could go thru 4 pigs, don't know if he was just hyping it up or what. also has a low flash powder for use with nightvision. looks to be coming out early next year in 223 and 308
    God, Guns, and Guts made this country...let's keep all three

    Re: Winchester Razorback XT

    I've tried loading a couple lead free bullets, Barnes and Berger brands. Two problems: you have to play with seating depth to get them to shoot accurately, as little as .003 can make a BIG difference AND at 250 plus yards from a .308 they are about like fmj-plenty of penetration with little expansion. If these Winchesters are superior to a regular bonded core or Nosler Partition, it'll have to be proved to me in the field. As long as I can get sub-moa from "regular" bullets that make clean kills, I'll stick with what I've seen work. I've seen 150gr. Core-Lokts started at 2800 fps blow thru hogs at distances from 30-200 yards, leaving at least 1" exits. My thoughts are "How dead is dead?"
    "some people never let their given word interfere if something they want comes along"
    The real problem with the world are laws preventing culling.
