Awesome!! You got some medium sized piggies. If you don't make bacon out of the belly contact a local spanish organization. You could get $1.75 a pound w/ the ribs on. Yum, chicharon. Fried belly served w/ fresh lime. Think about it, fried uncured, unsmoked bacon. It is awesome!!! If you get small ones, under 40lb dressed, they will pay $1.99 easy. Make sure the head is on. All of this is if the State allows it.

See now I'm going to have to find you a glass smooth Swede in 6.5x55.

Nice!

.223, right? What was your experience with it?
I have hunted and killed with .308 and carried .223 with no sighting.

How did the fmj do when it hit the pig? Did it take him down first shot or did you have a follow up shot?
