View Full Version : 357 Hog
Anybody know what 357 magnum round would be good for hogs out of a ruger GP-100 4in barrle. Thanx:thumbsup:
Hogs generally take something that penetrates deep and holds together well.
I think something like the Double Tap 180 or 200 gr WFNGC loads would work pretty well.
Winchester makes a 180 gr Partition Gold load that should work well.
If not them the 158 gr Jacketed Soft Points should work pretty well.
How far a shot you planning to make?
I agree that a heavy solid HP round is tops.
I would avoid the JSP imho not the best thing for them size animals that could get bigger and tuff'er as the hunt goes on. Great for deer by the way. I would als avoid any SD jacketed ammo either.
A good hardcast lead loading or as mention above a partition round would be my first picks. I'm doing some load testing using BTB bullets but out of a 357max and 14"'ncher bbl. Plan on doing some off season hunting and will be posting storys and photos.
Now granted the 357max has about 100-300fps on avg more than the 357magnum.
Small hogs around 100 lbs close in - why not?
Thanx everyone for your reply.:wavey:
