Rolling out in 2012 is the Winchester Razorback XT line of ammunition designed for hog hunting. Â Initially, theÂ RazorbackÂ XT will be loaded in .223 and .308. Â The .223 will use a 64 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of 3020 fps. Â The .308 load will use a 150 grain bullet with a velocity of 2810 fps.
Two thoughts. Â First, hunting wild pigs is really catching on, and it is nice to see the industry keeping up with the needs of their customers. Â The Razorback XT might be the first line specificallyÂ developedÂ for hogs, but I don’t think it will be the last. Â Hog hunting is becoming hugely popular, and I can say it is both an enjoyable and needed activity. Â Feral hogs are really causing problems in many areas of the country, and turning them into ham and bacon is a great way to spend the day. Â Feed your family with these pests!
