    My rifle is set up to shoot best with .310 to .311 bullets of 130 grains or less.

    What is the most effective 7.62x39 hog bullet of 120 to 130 grains weight?

    I think you would be pleased with the Hornady loads with the SST. I think it’s a 123 grain.

    Thanks Chopperdrvr,
    That's what I needed to know. My rifle likes those with CFE BLK powder. It shoots Hornady soft points, Speer Gold Dots, and Sierra ProHunters just as accurately, but I haven't shot anything but paper with any of these. So I was unsure about which had the best terminal performance.

    The “best” terminal performance would probably be the Cavity Back Bullets, but at more than twice the price. If you will be making mostly calculated single shots and not trying to eradicate every pig in the group within ten seconds you might want to give them a try. But, for blasting at any target presentation they give you, the SST’s have proven themselves to be hard to beat. Good luck. I am looking forward to loading for my 7.62x39 soon.
