I am thinking of hunting small game with my PS-90, I also own a hog farm. I have to put sick or injured hogs down from time to time and was wondering what round you guys thought would be best for this.

I'd say SS197.

On another note though. You could do individual damage assessment on the hogs you put down (As long as you would have to do it anyways) with SS197 and SS195 .

Let us know what you get. From my testing SS197 did more damage in a wide area from fragmenting/expanding although a bit shallower than the SS195, which went deeper but created two wound cavities.

I would use / recommend different cartridges based on the two different types of shots to be taken and the desired effects.

ss197 for hunting:
1) Most shots taken at relatively longer distances and/or moving targets.
2) More traditional type of light hunting / varmint bullet.
3) More damage to vitals from fragments for quicker kills.

ss195 for putting down domestic animals:
1) Here, bullet fragmentation is not desirable. All that is needed is to walk up
to the sick animal and shoot it in the head at point blank range.
(the most humane thing to do IMO)

Hope this helps.
