Guy in the video just looks like an idiot. I've killed a bunch of hogs with a .22lr. All you have to do is get 'em in the ribs or head. I now use a .223 with a combo of SP and BTHP ammo and I've never lost one.

Granted I live in Arkansas, but Arkansas hogs are just as big if not bigger than Texas hogs.

I have to agree with JonM!!! SP ammo is for hunting. Any hunting rifle larger than a 30/30 will drill right through a hogs shoulders and put him running on his chin. Shot placement is critical as always. I shot an old Asplund truck in the heavier back body with a 7.62x54r, it went through both sides. I was using a 203gr Brown Bear SP. I do believe the truck body is a little tougher than a hog.

I know wild hogs are a tougher than a domestic hog. I have shot a bunch of domestic hogs with a Winchester Super X 22LR round nose they all dropped. But it was a perfect shot at about 10 feet. We are talking 180 - 225 LB top hogs (grain fed). With a good hunting rifle there is no excuse for a hog not dropping on the spot.

To date I have shot about 25 hogs and witnessed about 5 others being shot and from what this video showed it was simply poor shot placement, to high and to far back but it died even if he did not retrieve it!!!!
I have killed hogs with a 223 (but will not use it anymore), 7mm-08, 30-30, 35 Remington (my personal favorite with 220 gr SP), and 308. The only one that got away was with a 223 and I hit it three (3) times with 62 gr SP.

It doesn't look like a failure of the bullet. The right HP could work fine, like a Barnes x-bullet.

Looks like a placement issue.

Like others have said "Bullet Placement" is the key to killing any species of game animal.That was just a bad shot,period.
