Hi there folks,
Last night I was talking to my old man about which bullet to use in my new rifle, I've just bought a Sauer 202 in 7mm Rem Mag and I'll be shooting wild boar and red deer with it.
So I've been looking at using the Norma Swift Scirocco 150 grains, in comparison with other bullets they seem turbo charged and Norma state that it is designed for heavier game. However, the expansion rate of this bullet is rapid and I'm concerned that on an adult boar in its winter coat that I may not get an exit shot. My old man said that this just means that the bullets given up all of its energy and it will result in an immediate kill. However, hypothetically speaking if I get a runner, surely an exit wound is going to produce the blood trail I'll need in order to find it and therefore should use something that retains a larger percentage of its original weight?
My question to you guys is, is it better for the bullet to exit or not to exit?
