Depends on how far you want to drag the hog. I’ll take a true rifle round over a handgun round as it’s likely to anchor the critter quicker with equal shot placement. What he said!

How about using a torch and just blow the holes?
The plates fit on pins that would be a big ugly for pins.

You put the plate on two pins, I drilled 1/4 holes, put in bolts (welded), cut off equal with plat, and hold it one the back with a clamp which pops off when the plate is pushed (shot).
