I only know two people who actually shoot one of these cannons, but I know there are probably a couple of hardcore, big bore pistol buffs who also hunt hogs.  This is good info, so please pass it around.

    Thanks for the heads-up. My husband has one of these and I think we do have some Hornady ammo for it. I’ll look tonight.
