Hog Hunting with DRT Ammo and Devastating Terminal Ballistics

By Bryan Black


I recently had a unique opportunity to head to Spike Box Ranch in Benjamin, TX for a hands-on look at what makes DRT Ammo so effective. I’m joined here by Nathan Dudney of DRT to explain why a single 55 grain 5.56 shot at 200 yards took down this 175 lb. hog. The 200 yard shot was taken with an M&P15 equipped with a Night Optics USA D-750 Night Vision 4x Scope.

Ammunition is one of those things that’s very hard to effectively review and this was a tremendous opportunity to truly see what DRT’s ammo is capable of. Shooting live tissue and analyzing the results after the fact, as we did here, gives  you a fantastic look at just what a bullet is doing within the body cavity. After all, that’s what I’m truly concerned about when it comes to terminal ballistics and the effectiveness of a round.
