Additional Info
Default Remington Hog Hammer Ammunition

Content courtesy of The Firearm Blog

Remington announced a new line of hunting ammunition called Hog Hammer. *As one might infer from the name, the ammo is designed specifically for hunting wild pigs. *The loads use the all copper Barnes TSX bullets. *The TSX, or Triple Shock, bullets are designed to penetrate deeply and to expand to twice their size.

Initial offerings will be in .223, .300 BLACKOUT, .30 Rem AR, .30-30, .308, .30-06 and .450 Bushmaster. *Prices are not cheap: *roughly $1.50 to $2.25 (US) per cartridge.

From Remington:

Remington Proudly Introduces Hog Hammer Ammunition Featuring BarnesTSX® Bullets*

Feral hog infestation is a very real and very expensive problem. An estimated six million hogs are roaming the nation, destroying crops and property, as well as endangering livestock and natural environments. Hog hunting is a unique pursuit that requires unique ammunition. Today, Remington Arms Company, LLC (“Remington”) is proud to announce the Hog Hammer™ line of centerfire ammunition.

New Remington Hog Hammer ammunition is loaded with Barnes Bullets’ tough, all-copper Triple Shock bullet to offer deep penetration, 100% weight retention, and reliable 2X expansion. *Outperforming traditional lead-core bullets, the Barnes TSX is the toughest expanding bullet on the market. Combined with four rapidly expanding, razor-sharp cutting petals, Hog Hammer creates deep, wide wound channels through tough hide and bone of the biggest, most aggressive feral hogs. Because so many hogs are hunted at night, Hog Hammer utilizes a flash-suppressed propellant for nighttime or low light hunts. To ensure reliable feeding in today’s popular hog rifles, each round is packed in a nickel-plated case.

Key Features:
  • Legendary Barnes TSX all-copper bullet construction for 28% more penetration than standard lead core bullets
  • Superior penetration, even on large, tough-skinned hogs
  • 100% weight retention
  • Devastating terminal performance
  • Four rapidly expanding, razor-sharp cutting petals
  • Flash-suppressed propellant for night time and low-light hunts
  • Nickel plated cases provide reliable function when it counts on unpredictable, dangerous game
  • Multiple grooves machined into the shank means less bullet comes in contact with the bore virtually eliminating copper following and jacket shaving – important with high volume hog hunting and suppressor use.

"Transform and roll out!"
