Well I had a great opportunity this weekend on a big boar. We caught him just grazing in a field, and we closed the distance to about 180-200 yds. He was big and all by himself. My buddy had the camcorder and I had my 270 with 130grain core lokt soft point. I had a great rest in the prone and felt very confident in the shot. Well I waited untill he turned brodside and squeezed the trigger slowly. He dropped right in his tracks, with his feet kicking up in the air. He squealed for about 40 seconds and stopped moving. Yeah we got him my buddy whispered. Well that wasnt the case because as soon as my buddy said he was down, that big pig got up and ran into the brush, and then through the other side and kept going. What happened? Is my 270 two small for that distance, or is that front shoulder just too thick to penetrate? Man this pig was hit hard. We looked that evening and the next morning and found no sign of anything. I would of put another one in him but couldnt find him in the scope. Has anybody ever experienced this. I know I hit him in the front shoulder because I have it on video. Well can anybody shed some light on this?
