    .308 is not my favorite, but just for hogs it's hard to beat. With a 150 grain SGK at 2900 FPS MV it's a pig gitter from HELL!!!


    Yeah it was either that or a .223. I figured bigger is always better.

    In the case of hogs, yes bigger is probably better, especially for your first hunt. There's a lot of hogs killed with a .223, but it can be iffy and requires more exact shot placement in a more or less immediately fatal spot. The .308 won't kill them any deader, but it will kill them easier. With a 150 or 165 grain bullet it's quite deadly.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    That's exactly what my uncle said. I just read his text again and it said a .308 will kill right now. A .223 will kill just as good.

    A .223 will kill them just as dead, but a .308 will do it more often.

    He has is sighted in pretty good. 3 shots within an inch of bullseye at 50 yards. Not much worse at 100.

    That's close enough because most hogs are pretty big targets, LOL!!!
