Well, in 2 weeks I'm headed back to Texas for another wild hog hunt.
I went down with 3 friends about 2 years ago and had a real nice time.
The folks in TX are real nice and sure know how to make BBQ!
I have several ARs of various calibers but despite that I'm taking my Savage '99 again.
If you read my post "The Old Woman Died" you know the rifle I'm talking about.
I'll be the only one not taking an AR to hunt with.
One is using a 6.8SPC( a good hog killing round)and a .300 Blackout AR-pistol.
One is taking a 7.62x39 and the other is using his .223.
Some say the .223 is too light for hogs and it is certainly on the bottom of the spectrum but what it lacks in punch it makes up for in accuracy.
Bullet placement with hogs is pretty important as is a good bullet design.
There are a lot of good hog loads on the market right now.
On our last trip my 16 yr old nephew killed a 150# boar with a .223 using Hornady Superperformance GMX rounds.
1 shot was all it took....
