I never took a pig with an AR, but my best friend took one to the senior prom.

If you're looking for private land to fold them, see if any paper mills are in your area. A lot of times they will pay you to send the hogs to hog heaven.
Yes you need a license to hunt hogs on public land. Also this goes for all the different wildlife management areas, in the state of Florida. It is also true that the magazine limit to use in semi-auto center-fire rifles is 5 rds. Hunted here in Florida all my life, fun going after those pine woods rooters.

I've got friends who hunt hogs all year round and the only thing they use is AR15s. They have no issues with them. They kill them all the time and donate the meat to a homeless shelter when their freezers are full.

One of them uses M855. (Cheap mil-spec .556NATO with the steel penetrator.)

What about hitting it with one of these? 130 Hornady V-Max 300 AAC hand load.

Vmax isn't bonded, hit any bone and you're SOL. Even if you dont hit the bone you're not getting much penetration with jt. Works great on smaller game though!

I asked my buddy, he said we had the problems we had with it because we were using the 32 grain. My bad.
