I'm just surprised with all the marlin guide gun fanatics out there on top of other 45/70's- that there is really only one or two you tube videos on this caliber making kills on hogs. Let alone any other game..

Going out tomorrow, not a camera person but I will see what I can do. I can assure you they fall over....

The rifle was a Miroku Winchester 1886 with 26" octagonal barrel.

Load was 350 gr. Hornady Round Nose in front of 55.2 grains of IMR 4064.  According to the Hornady Manual, this load should be running about 1700 fps.

Yes, despite the double lung hit, the hog ran another 50 yards into dense brush.  Never left another drop of blood until it piled up.  

The way he ran off, I would have thought I'd missed if it werent for the 5 gal. of blood and lungs on the tree. ;)
