Re: Hog hunting. Which gun to use?
I shot a 150+ lb hog behind the shoulder with my .243 and he dropped like a rock. Full penetration at 220 yards. I would not be afraid to take a behihd the shoulder shot with a .223 either, but I would probably just shoot them in the head. It is a fairly large target on a hog. I have taken my .223 hog hunting, but have not had the opportunity to shoot one with it yet.
