Use the heaviest lead or Full Metal Jacket bullet you can find. Head shoot if you can and gut shoot
the rest (I hate hogs and kill everyone I see one way or the other).
The only good hog is a dead hog. (We are overrun with hogs in Texas and they are hurting every
other type of hunting we have.
I have used every rifle I have from a 17 HMR to a 416 and even a 3 1/2' turkey load on several
occasions and prefer the big bores but if you can only use rim fires the 22 WRM is good with the
right bullets. The little 17 HMR also works good with the 20 grain FMJ if you head shoot them.
Good luck (Kill them all)
