It's gator season down here on private property so I took the Rogue out to see what it would do. Got a 8' 1" gator with one shot behind the eyes to dispatch it. Here is the run down on the gun setup. Benjamin Rogue filled to 2500psi set on 145gr/LOW with a 115gr Hunters Supply Pentagon Hollow Point. Still got some bigger ones in the area so I will keep yall posted if we get anymore.

I always like to see all the R&D work come together. Never thought about this bullet being used on a gator.
As they say a photo is worth a thousand words.
Congratulations,you have done a great job with the Rouge and Hunters Supply bullets
you must tie the jaws after the kill under the law. I will also note that we where hunting pigs and put out a gator line to pass the time and I wouldn't risk dropping the Rogue in water if you want it to last very long. Its pretty easy to drop a gun out of a boat.
but from what I've seen on swamp people it looks like shooting one spinning on the end of a line is a lot more difficult than head shooting a pig at thirty yards, how would you compare the experience? Nice animal by the way.
I try not to get them that stured up so they dont get off the line. I wait till the come up for air and let them have it. You have to be quick. Cant really compair the two. You are much more relaxed because you know you can just shoot again if you dont make a good shot. Make a bad head shot on a pig and they are gone. More like shooting a pig on a snare. Lots of jumping around and then making a snap shot.
