There's no denying it—wild hog populations have skyrocketed in recent years... and so has the interest in hunting the surprisingly resilient boars.

Winchester Ammunition wants to make cutting through the thick hide of wild boars easier, and has delivered the Winchester Razordback XT for just that purpose.

The Razorback XT is a lead-free bullet that sports a beveled profile and hollow point. It packs flash suppressed powders, making it an ideal round to use in the low or no-light situations that hog hunting often calls for.

Winchester is offering the round in two different calibers (.223 and .308). More information can be found in the video below.

Razorback XT Specs (2012):

Caliber Symbol Bullet Weight Velocity
.223 Rem S223WB 64 Grain 3020
.308 Win S308WB 150 Grain 2810
