I shot a wild boar with a .50 Cal. Lyman Great Plains bullet over 90 grains of BP. It's home cast pure lead weighing 395 grains with SPG lube.
It struck the shoulder at about 60 yards, mushroomed to double diameter and stopped just under the hide. The hog did a 180 and ran, but my partner got him with his .45-70.
I thought I'd hit him, but couldn't sure be until we skinned him. I still have the bullet.
Maybe it was a fluke so I'm going to try some penetration tests to find out.
