Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

hahaha! It sounds like y'all have a bit of a hog problem up there. You take the shots you can get sometimes! What was the weight of the Barnes (TSX?) projectile? Was it Barnes factory loads or another manufacturer using Barnes projectiles?

Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

They were corbon 62 grain. We got screwed be our guide and he double booked our Sunday so we left early not in the best of mood but still had enough fun. We ended with 46 dead hogs and 3 Spanish goats. Started to run out of ammo in my 223. And start using shotgun and pistol. Smith and Wesson500 rolls em right over, and me lol.

Holy crap! Were y'all hunting out of a helicopter? When we have a good night here, we have like 6 or so on the ground but we hunt using a 4-wheeler and a 12 ga.

If you have the barrel length to get the 62 grain Swift Scirroco II up to 3000 at the muzzle it should work well on a hog if you put it where it needs to go. If you have a fast twist barrel the 75 grain Swift Scirroco II is a good choice too.

Nope hunting over feeders. The guide buys them from trappers and releases them go at his ranch. Lots of fun.

Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

I've killed over 50 hogs with this rd. in the last year at our ranch in Texas at ranges from 50 yds to over 300 yds. Some setting still some running away and it opens em up like a can opener. They literally trip over themselves if they get a chance to run away. That little steel penetrator upsets and acts much like a saw blade. I don't even bother to police them up anymore as the real nasty ones will come back to eat their former friend, they are the nastiest smartest animal I've ever killed. Thank god for thermals.
