Hog themed ammo

Today I went down the rabbit-hole of finding all of the Hog-hunting themed ammo which has been branded with hogs in mind over the recent years. There are plenty…

A common theme seems to be either solid copper rifle projectiles, or Brenneke slugs in 12ga, as loaded by various manufacturers around the world. Many of these are just random generic loads which the manufacturers had loaded previously, but which underwent a branding shift to target the ever-growing hog hunting market.

I notice that Winchester now has their “Hog Special” in production (which is nothing more than generic Power Point JSP loads with some pig graphics on the box, as well as their Extreme Point (Deer Season) ballistic tips being branded in a new line featuring a hog on the box. Ramshot’s “Wild Boar” powder is a little dubious in so far as any relation the powder would have to hog hunting, except that it might be geared towards 12ga? All of the hog-themed ammo is a little dubious to be honest, in that they are just regular ammo with a marketing angle attached to the name / packaging. The real question is price, and whether the generic versions of these brandings cost less for the same ammo? Oh well…

… FK Brno’s 7.5 offering with the notion of hog hunting on the graphics (for use with their $8,000 Saudi-Prince toy pistol) is ever the absurdity…

Nice article Matt.

Was going to post a photo of one of AZ’s native wild pigs, but not really ammo…

Here is a shot of my one box of Remington .30AR Hog Hammer…
