Hey everyone,



My father and I are going pig hunting in TX next month and I'm wondering about loads. Most likely the pigs will be 100lbs or under and I want to use my .30-30. Which of the above 170gr loads would be better? I'll be reloading for either one.

Hit them in the right place and the hogs won't know the difference. Dead is dead.
Both are good bullets which will get the job done.

Nosler Partition. The Power Point is the only bullet I have ever used that failed to expand on a well hit hog. I know others may have used it with great success and no complaints but I simply will not use it again nor will I recommend it to anyone. Having said that I highly recommend using the Barnes X bullet in your 30-30 if you find it accurate enough, then to the Hornady LeverEvolution ammo in a close second, again whichever is most accurate in your rifle.
