Made specifically for those who dabble in hog hunting with their .223 rifles, this ammo allows you to use a lightweight projectile and still expect clean, one shot kills on these animals at distances that make this sport even more fun. The specially designed projectile by Hornady is a high weight retention bullet with a monolithic design and a controlled expansion design.
The hog hunters who already know the .223 Remington to be a capable round for the exercise can now get all the engineering and research and development that Hornady has put into its products, with a lightweight 50 grain projectile custom loaded for hogs. For those who aren’t yet convinced that this load can effectively kill hogs in the field at such a lightweight configuration, can rest assured that Hornady has put the numbers to the test. The already known and reliable engineering of the GMX projectile makes absolute sense for animals like hogs, but the velocity and energy dump of the .223 Remington in this load, combined with the monolithic weight retention of the all copper bullet, makes this round very effective against moderate and smaller Hogs, and sufficient for even some of the bigger animals.
