According to military sniper superstition, there is one round destined to end the life of each person, "the round with your name on it". Until that round is fired, the person for which it is intended is invincible. If the sniper carries this round at all times, it can never be fired.
The term "HOG" is actually an acronym derived from the title "Hunter Of Gunmen", which is the colloquial name for a sniper who kills an enemy sniper in combat. He then has to take a round from the enemy sniper's magazine - that's the one "with his name on it". The bullet from that round is then worn as a necklace and symbolizes the tooth of a real hog, expressing his status as a "Hunter of Gunmen".
