Unlike other bullets that are designed to be frangible, the Bonded Performance bullet is designed to stay intact and create a more devastating temporary and permanent wound cavity.

“We developed Boar Buster because we saw a need in the market for a modern sporting rifle specific hunting load ammunition that feeds reliably and achieves the deadly performance that is needed to stop a boar in its tracks.” Stated B.J. Norris, Marketing Manager. “Freedom Munitions decided that our customers’ ammunition should actually do what the box says it can do.”

Featuring a copper plated, lead bonded projectile, Boar Buster ensures prevention of core-jacket separation.

“The jacket and core of the bullet are chemically bonded together which creates a consistent mushrooming effect that is ideal for penetrating thick hides and crushing bones.” Said Jansen Jones, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Freedom Munitions.

Initial offerings will be a 64 grain 223 Remington and 168 grain 308 Winchester. For pricing and to purchase Freedom Munitions’ Boar Buster Ammunition, visit www.FreedomMunitions.com.

    I buy their remanufactured ammo for range food for all of my guns. Its good stuff. Cant talk to this product, but if its as good as their range ammo, then its damn good.

    For a second there, I thought it was Ball Buster Ammo, and I was thrilled that my (now) ex never knew about it.

    They already made soft points. Though they seem to have trouble keeping specific types of ammo in stock, a 308 soft point is plenty lethal against hogs, I assure you.

    I imagine there are already several excellent ammunition choices in .308 Winchester for promptly dispatching feral hogs. As for .223 Remington, however, I am not aware of any ammunition choice that would promptly dispatch a feral hog with a body shot. This offering could be an outstanding option.

    This might also be an excellent choice for people who want to use .223 Remington to hunt white-tailed deer as well.

    I know lots of people think hollowpoints are the be-all-end-all for lethal hunting ammunition: personally, I much prefer properly designed soft point bullets for hunting. They provide expansion and deep penetration versus hollowpoints that often fragment or “grenade” when they hit an animal.

      Leghorn posted a helicopter shoot video a year or so back of him in a Robinson, and .223/5.56 was dropping piggies left and right quite handily…

      Does TTAG have a link for that vid still available?

          Very exciting, especially the part around9:00 where the guy in the back seat nearly shoots his partner’s toe off.

    I like a 55grain to the ear. I’d be curious of the 64s accuracy in my sporter

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      Interesting. When I was in the Army and walking guard duty the our platoon sergeant gave us this advice: “Always shoot to wound. I prefer to attempt to wound them in either ear, or both at the same time, if you can.”

    I have put thousands of rounds of Freedom Munitions through my guns. I love their products and it is hard to beat their prices, especially when they have s&have deals.

  7. avatar Mike says:

    Anybody got specs on this offering – FPS, muzzle energy? I’ve seen a lot of under-powered product at Freedom Munitions – OK for range, but wouldn’t want to trust some of it to a hunt or PD.
    And there might be a name conflict – https://www.midwayusa.com/product/969212/lightfield-boar-buster-ammunition-12-gauge-2-3-4-1-1-16-oz-sabot-slug-box-of-5 – different company, different munition.

    Though I have no reason to be suspicious of FM new rounds, I highly recommend that the PTOG stay very far away from their reman stuff. This alone makes me nervous about FM’s new ammo anyways.

    This is why:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=freedom+munitions+308+kaboom

    While searching for bulk 308 to prepare for a potential Clinton-Cluster, I ended up on FM’s page. The name kept tugging at something I’d forgotten about, until it suddenly broke free.

    A few years before, I inherited some boxes of reman 308 from various outfits, which I was put through the CETME. I’d *never* had a FTE that rifle, yet out of one box of FM I had two; plus some that seemed to eject more violently than usual (ultraviolence?). I never found those casings. The box & ammo itself was beat & dirty, but the rifle was clean. I chalked it up to old rounds possibly exposed to elements and moved on.

    But after remembering, I did a quick Google-Fu on FM reman problems before buying, and was surprised at how common they are (many being catastrophic). What amazes me is that it’s been going on for a long time. A deeper search on Arfcom & Reddit revealed some very troubling aspects of the company as well; enough so that FM has joined my own “Springfield” boycott list.
