300 Blackout bullet for pigs?
« on: February 11, 2019, 02:49:20 PM »
Looking for suggestions on bullets for pigs with a 300 blackout. 100# to 250# range

I want to load some up for my son in S.C. He is in the Air Force and based at Fort Sumpter. He has killed quite a few with his 300 blkout with 120 grain FMJ with head shots but he is looking for a better all around hunting bullet in the 150 gr or so.

He wants an all copper ( Barnes, GMX etc) but I'm concerned about expansion at such low velocities. I'm a bonded bullet guy but at his velocities  ( 1700 to 1900 fps, Im thinking maybe a BT or maybe a Honady Interlock


We killed a few last time I was down there with head shots with the FMj and they drop like a sack of spuds

I'm with you. I like the bonded bullets. When I go to all copper the etip is usually my choice and its a killer. However I think you are spot on. Most the solid copper bullets wont open much or probably at all at those very low velocity's. I think most are around 1800fps to get to open well. So its going to be border line on performance.

I have played with the lehigh bullets a little that are made for the 300blk that are all copper and made to expand at low velocity's. You might look into them.

I have played with the ME but those are made for more subsoic hunting.

This bullet looks like it could be a winner and will open and preform down to 1500fps.

Thanks for the replies
What is the ME you refrred too?

I think he wants something that he can still head shoot at close range and something for broadside shots out to 100 yards. The more I think about it the more I think a non bonded but on the tougher side might be the ticket. I have some 200 gr Partitions that I shoot out of my 300win mag but he doesnt want them that heavy

160 gr Partition?

I've killed a ton of critters with the partition and accubond more accubond now days for the bc. Always a excellent choice!!!
The ME is a bullet from them designed to expand in like 900-1200 fps range when running subsonic.

I am curious who has eaten wild boar killed here in the US?
The reason I ask, here in Oklahoma I have seen wild boar on every deer hunt I have been on. They are easy to find, but my god they stink to high heaven!
I could smell them from hundreds of yards away, and they are the foulest animal I have encountered.
I have no problem exterminating them on sight because they are a plague, but if I could get past the smell I would try BBQing one up.
But only if it is worth the effort to put up with that foul stench!

I have ate them. Probably 7-9 total. The big boars are rank fit for sausage or donating. If you shoot like 75-125# pigs they are really pretty good eating. Just got to cook the crap out of them if they are from areas with worms and trichinosis is always around in pigs so no rare pig meat for me.

Carps is right about the bigger ones stinking more and the best eaters are 60 to 120#. All the ones we killed in S.C. were awesome eating and  we cooked them many different ways and they were all great

Alchase,

Shoot a 60 to 80 pounder and give it a try. I like that they are open year round also. My son was out in his stand tonight with his bow. Had 12 or so come in, close to a shot but wind swapped just enough to booger him

I ate a little one (maybe 50 sounds) that I shot in TX last year.  Marinated the backstraps in Italian dressing for a day then grilled.  Very tasty. 


Hearing good things about the 150 grain Speer Gold Dot for an inexpensive supersonic load that expands at .300 BLK velocities, but I have not tried them.

Heavier bullet weight is not the answer for supersonic 300 Blk. Your son will be a lot better off just choosing a better bullet than FMJ in the 110-125gr range. FMJ pretty much sucks, and there are a lot better options available for hunting. 150gr and heavier is not the answer, unless you're just looking for more FMJ-like performance. The 125gr Nosler Ballistic Tip for example will do everything he's looking for in a 300 Blackout.
