What experience is there on these tough little desert dwelling beasts
I can't see for any reason at all why they wouldnt work. I personally wouldn't use them just due to price, lots and lots of quality heads that will work and cost significantly less
Elk, moose, grizz, for sure.....but javelina? No way they could penetrate them.
The stink may melt the BH.
Besides, a Javelina doesn't deserve to die with a "high dollar" BH !!
Javi are only worth Chinese eBay knockoffs .....7.99 for two dozen heads.
Big question is can you use them for squirrels
The last Javelina I killed was with an MA-2 that was beaten back straight after a I missed and hit a rock. I don't have experience beating an Iron Will back to straight with a rock or if they even bend....so, I can't say.
What about Gophers? Do you think they would fair okay on Gophers?
I am sure the IW 125 would work but only if you were wearing a Sitka system and Kenetrek mountain boots.
I'm going to try some Cold Steel "plastic serrated" broad heads on hogs and Javelina.
Tried a Cold Steel at a target today. Flew straight, penetration was good. Shot at hay bale, did a complete pass through and skipped on the ground. Ground sheared off the serration on one side. As I thought, ( 1 ) shot broad heads.
^^^^^So it's a (1) shot broadhead for a buck. A rage is a (1) shot broadhead for $15. I wouldn't complain ;)
Not complaining, just saying.

I wouldn’t use a $33 dollar head on a javelina especially with how rocky the areas are that they inhabit.
Really, they don’t excite me much. I think they are better suited for a spear. There is no way that I would shoot one with a gun.
