Hog hunting. Which gun to use?
So I am going hog hunting in a couple of weeks and I have a couple of questions for you.
First, which rifle should I use? I only have a Garand and an AR. I figured the Garand. 30.06, plenty of power, although a little heavy to lug around all day. Then a guy at work says use the AR. It seems silly to even ask, but it just seems to me that the AR with a 55 grain FMJ and less knockdown power is insufficient for the task. He contends that the faster bullet will have little trouble penetrating a tough hog hide and the bullet is sufficient if properly placed. Is he full of crap or is there any merit to his argument?
The other question is, where is your aiming point on a broadside hog? I was thinking right behind the shoulder but a little below the center line of the body. And would you recommend a neck shot instead, if he is close enough? Thanks
