Yep, took 'em with the guide's .243 and factory-loaded ammo. Not sure, but I think 100-grain bullets. It proved quite lethal for head shots at 70 to 80 yards. A friend in FL hunts hogs with a .22 Hornet. "Be patient and aim for the ear," he says.
I prefer a .270 for all-around deer hunting, but I've also used a .243 to take alligator, pronghorn, whitetail & mule deer.

I'm not the only one who likes wild pork. On strict orders from my wife, we sneaked some fresh backstraps past Brazilian customs on the way home.
