I have a Marlin 1894P with Ballard rifling. I'm looking for a good load for feral boar in Texas. I have a good Keith type that drops at 245-248 grains in wheel weight & 50/50 solder mix (9:1). It doesn't have a gas check so I'm looking for a good load that will not lead the barrel too badly, but will drop the pig reliably. Would I be better off using the Sierra full profile match jacket bullet at 250 grains?
