These all come from North Texas. I have been helped out a couple of guys with hog problems on their land and also on my land. Will be out more this week trying to get some more...

I am using the same gear in each: 6.5 Grendel shooting Hornady 123 gr. SST factory ammo, Armasight Zeus 3 thermal scope mounted on an Alexander Arms upper and LMT lower. The recordings are captured via a little dvr hooked into the video-out of the scope. The brass catcher is from Tactical Brass Recovery.

I think the Grendel is a terrific round. I don't know about the guys hunting elk with it, but some do and are successful. However, for critters smaller than elk, I think it is very capable.

I was hunting a new property, in a stand I had only been in for about an hour. Hogs came out and after the first shot, the rest ran right by me. So I was trying to pivot but found the chair didn't turn and to point my rifle that low, I had to rise up out of my seat because of the rail on the tripod stand. So one solid hit on the runners and two clean misses.

This one turned out to be pretty interesting. I had what I thought was a strange little butterball boar coming to my place. In the game came images, he appears to have short legs and a bit of a forehead instead of a straight slope (2nd or 3rd gen feral?). He was coming in and staying until all the corn was gone, which is a no-no. It wasn't until my third trip out that I finally got him in the scope. He walked right in and stopped at a small pile of corn I had poured on the ground and proceeded to eat, standing still with his head down, not a care in the world...and that is how he left the world. Turned out to be a much larger boar than I expected, nearly 200 lbs. The shot entered the left side of his head, a bit lower below his ear than I would have liked, going through the ascending ramus of the mandible, skirting the bottom of the skull, down the neck and fragment managed to get into both shoulders with the right humerus getting broken. Only a few tiny bullet fragments were recovered.
