Piggies with a .223

Shot this boar last night out of a heard of 30 at 116 yards with my 20” AR and 64gr Gold Dot. 





And folks on TV say nobody hunts with an AR?

    It was late. I was tired. Didn’t want to deal with more.

    Ummm, not what we are waiting for. We know a pig will drop with a .223 with a head shot. Booooring.

    I already financed his hit on the Hogzilla raking shot with a 62 grain Barnes.  What more do you want from me?

    No kidding. Get on with it. What they don't know hasn't been bugging them for several days. It has been driving me crazy. You heartless jerk.

    A .223 will kill all the hogs in Texas. Just hit em in the neck or head. That's where I aim if their within 100-150 yards. I shot one about 300+ a few years back with the .270 and aimed for the heart. He ran about 10-15 yards and died about 10 feet inside the tree line. But if they inside 100-150 give me a .223.

    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
