We get pretty close in with the hogs, usually not more than 50yds and inside a wooded area. Windage isn't an issue, but lobbing one 150yds across a meadow with a cross wind... i would image you'd have to be really good or plan on doing some tracking.

This is all from my very hypothetical guesswork.

I just know that being a heavy, slow round, the ballistic drop is going to be significant.

Pretty sure i posted this before, but this is the round i found in the last pig i shot.
