Sent underwood an email about loading 9x25 dillon with 65 grain defender

The only problem I have had with those super light bullets is the self destruct after hitting anything hard.  I've only shot a couple of pigs ranging from about 50 pounds to around 140, the 90 grain JHP's from a BHP at around 1500 FPS.  The bullets performed poorly.  Didn't get enough penetration for reliable kills.  I had to damn near empty the magazine on each hog.

That's on gelatin with denim on it.  Pigs got hides with mud on the out side and then bones and fiddly bits on the inside.  They aren't real uniform.  Penetration sucked.

I shot Lehighs' out of a .38 Special snubbie at bowling pins at 7 yards.  A standard 158 grain bullet would knock the pin off the table.  Lehighs wouldn't reliably do that.  They did tear chunks out of the pins, though.  I sort of think that it would do fine as a self defense load, where the objective is instant incapacitation, the bad guy dying is moot as long as he ceases the attack after a hit.

I have more respect for whitetail deer...

this will be my first year with 9x25 dillon and lehighs. I'll most likely bring a 308 AR also

the LCP is only after deer are dead and at closer range.                                                         

interesting on the bowling pins. I'll be doing concrete blocks after deer season

Before you make a video of shooting pigs, you should really learn where the vitals are.  I didn't watch past the part where the shooter talks about taking a high shoulder shot.  Unless he hit the spine, that's a really poor place to hit a pig, all you'll get is liver.  The pig will run off and eventually bleed out.  Or die of infection, depending on how much liver you get.  Either way, not a quick humane kill.

And I don't get paid for pigs that run off and die a week later.  And as long as the pig is screaming, it'll spook all the pigs for miles around.
