The Hornady 200 grain HAP bullet will work for hogs, just don't expect too much from expansion as it wouldn't be as uniformed. It may even colapse on one side, it could separate the core some.

As with any game animal well placed shots can make all the difference, for Mr. Pig Hog a head shot saves the edible meat from being bloodied.

I shoot HAP bullets out of my RMW 10mm all the time - 11" barrel. Some are over book (don't tell anyone)

1) They are very accurate.
2) They are damned destructive
3) I wish we had pigs to shoot, and I can dream - but my guess is they will be great.

I am torn between the XTP and the HAP.  The sensible side of me says to spend a few extra cents per bullet and get the XTP. The cheap side of me says get the HAP. We shoot them with 22 mag all the time with no problem. Any 10mm will do fine.

How does your RMW run? Is it picky about ammo? Did you have to tweak it to dial it in?

I reload too and will be running over book as well.

Oh yeah I/we did: http://10mm-firearms.com/10mm-rifles/rmw-extreme-build-it-has-begun/

Ask any questions in that thread or start a new one.
