Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

I have killed hundreds of hogs with a .223. Shot'em with Barnes, nosler, sierras, ball ammo, and so forth. All in all the 62 gr federal fusion has performed flawlessly. Great penetration, but stay in the hog a lot. Where I shoot most of them I can't have pass throughs due to cars and buildings. I have broke both shoulders of a 300 lb boar with the 62 gr Barnes Ttsx. So depending on your needs there are lots of good choices.

Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

Ive been using a 75gr PPU Match bullet loaded with WC842.. its about 2575 out of a 16" barrel and it works great on deer and hogs..

275# boar (i think this is #47 for me with the .223 and 75gr)



Single shot dropped him.
He was facing me slightly quartering, pullet entered the neck and was lodged on the oppostie side between the armour plate and the hide..

Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

I have pictures of a wound channel from a 170# sow i shot last year.
She took off running and i pegged her a lil further back than what i wanted but still dropped her dead.

I cant rem which forums frown upon gory pictures.

Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

dixie I found the same thing about the barnes. very little expansion even at less than 50 yards, Now they did role many of the pigs on the run but i will be moving back to the partition or trying the fusions. I may end up just swapng barrel for a 6x45.

Re: favorite .223 hog bullet.

Here in north Florida we don't have as many hogs as the Texans have but we have our fair share and they are a real pest if you're a deer hunter.

They're almost totally nocturnal if they feel the slightest bit pressured so we rarely see any more than the tracks and the food plots they tear up.

Uncle Ted has a great way to hunt them in Texas... ;)
