Hogs Hate It, We Love It!
Time to bag some bacon with Hornady’s latest offering, the new line of center-fire rifle ammo called Full Boar Ammunition. This pork specific ammo has been tailor made to drop pigs throughout a wide range of calibers. Each round is loaded with the GMX bullet. If you haven’t used one of these bullets yet, you’re in for a whole new experience in coreless, ballistic joy. About the bullet being coreless, it’s a monolithic style bullet made of a unique homogeneous copper allow with no lead core. This is great news for our folks who live in eco-friendly regions, and need to avoid the lead. To aid in the expansion process, the plastic tip does some double duty. It keeps the drag down, and upon impact, pushes into the cavity, initiates the expansion, thereby mushrooming the bullet. Also, since there is no true core of the bullet, there’s no separation of components, so it just obliterates bone and soft tissue, without sacrificing velocity. With a high BAL CO for their respective weights, and a very uniform pressure curve, expect these rounds to give an optimal performance time, and again.
