Thought this may be of interest:

One juvenile feral male pig, roughly 100-120# w/ 16" AR for scale.

Entrance wounds from three rounds of LE223T1. NOTE: no exit wounds

Pics of recovered LE223T1.

Results: 2 bullets enter into lungs from a downward angle. One round "gut shoots." Pig moves manages to change its orientation (explaining gut shot) and move roughly 2 feet then collapses. Opposite sholder is broken. No rounds exit. Recovered round retained 53 of 55 grain - 96% retention. Maximum width is 0.47 inches. The recovered round was found roughly 6" behind the opposite shoulder, suggesting that it struck the shoulder bones, damaged them then richoceted towards the rear.

At what range?

Distance was roughly 15 yards. The "T" is something Federal put there.

The "T"tands for Tactical
The "1" stands for 55gr

The "T" on the base of the bullet probably stands for Trophy Bonded.

This is a bonded bullet, correct?

The bullet is bonded. If you want the 55 grain version w/ non-LE markings, buy model number P223T2.
