Winchester Razorback XT Ammo

Winchester Razorback XT ammunitionRolling out in 2012 is the Winchester Razorback XT line of ammunition designed for hog hunting.  Initially, the Razorback XT will be loaded in .223 and .308.  The .223 will use a 64 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of 3020 fps.  The .308 load will use a 150 grain bullet with a velocity of 2810 fps.

Two thoughts.  First, hunting wild pigs is really catching on, and it is nice to see the industry keeping up with the needs of their customers.  The Razorback XT might be the first line specifically developed for hogs, but I don’t think it will be the last.  Hog hunting is becoming hugely popular, and I can say it is both an enjoyable and needed activity.  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.  Feed your family with these pests!
