I've used the 300 XTP on exactly one hog. About 250 pounds. Dropped him with a single shot between the eyes about 15' off the tips of my boots. It worked but I sure wasn't pleased with how it worked.

Found the bullet and jacket separated but close together under the hide on his right side after it went thru the front shoulder missing bone. A hard cast would have exited. Still It dropped him rat now and that was what was important at that particular moment as I didn't have much more room to spare.
