The additional blood on that boar was from the other 4 pigs I shot and loaded into the truck that evening. Not additional shots on that particular boar. The side you see was his off side at the shot. All blood on that side is from other pigs.

He was a one shot kill with the .223 Rem. I mention that, because I?ve been asked before. 😁

I guess I didn't word things correct. I would like to see a Nosler Partition, in the .224 caliber. I would use it in the 223. My 22-250 has a 1-12 twist.
Most 1-7 twist are in the 223 caliber nowadays. That, is a better choice than a slower twist in either caliber, IF,, you are going to use a 70gr or heavier.
Specialty pistols or Contenders, I was hoping those of you using that caliber might have an opinion, about a "Partition" for the said caliber.

While I do appreciate the fact that several or even many kills have been made with lighter bullets, from whatever angle or whatever area of the hog it was placed into. I was not trying to steer the thread in this direction. But obviously my comment about "thinking of Hogs" stirred the pot. Haaa Previously most of my hunting, was not with the 223 since I felt that a decent bullet was not available.
I Had NOT tried the Barnes.
Actually I had not even given a whole lot of thought to using a 223, until recently.

Sorry to help Hijack your thread.
can't comment on the partitions but I have loaded and shot the 62gn TSX bullets in a 1:9 twist rem 700 and they shot well (haven't hunted with them, I think it would work well on deer or smaller hogs with proper placement. The gun will not stabilize the 70 grain TSX (recommended 1:8 or faster) but will stabilize the 77 gn SMK factory ammo.

With that much bullet in the case a long throat and non-magazine feed will help.

edit to keep this pistol related: My 1:12 factory 14" contender barrel doesn't like any of them.
Also the Barnes are cheaper then the Accubond!
