Double or triple tap. It would really depend on the construction of that HP; if it's a light skin, it will blow up on a shoulder/ hide shield. If you hit it in the neck, it will go down like a blond on prom night. If it's a heavy skin on the bullet, then it will at least penetrate the cavity and blow up inside the hog, which will kill it. But it might not STOP it right there; wear running shoes for the chase.......
