I was reading on the web today where the author says the XTP is a bad choice for a trophy hog. Seems that they expand too soon for reliable penetration. He was speaking from the handgun point of view though, not fired from a levergun. The added velocity, upwards of 1800fps may be the difference.

All I can say is that "I have the bug"! The gotta go hog hunting again bug that is!

I think I may take Paul up on a visit to his area! Next time I want to try public land and do the scouting on my own. Of course I will be taking "Annie" with me too!
