    Sounds about right for a 22 inch barrel accuracy node.

    The bullet seems to have performed well considering the impact velocity would have been reasonably high and that big bones where struck.
    Can clearly see how the bonding process works with the copper jacket still attached to the lead core.

    I shot a second hog, of about the same size, at 135m facing away from the shot. The bullet hit 6" in front of the left hind leg and exited from the right shoulder. No major bone was hit.
