50 Beowulf is also a bad ass hog gun.

If I were to get another .308 semi-auto, I would be looking at KEL-TEC RFB.

No idea if it's quality but it's defiantly bad ass.
I had the same problem with a POF in .556. After 3 months, I went with LWRC instead.

big,

There are several solutions that will work well. If you want a real hog thumper at 150 yards and in. If you would have an AR-15 by chance. Just get you a Rock River Arms 458 SOCOM complete upper and switch out your upper back and forth from the 5.56 to the 458 SOCOM. Takes the same AR-15 Magazine. It will hold 10 458s in a 30 round mag and 7 in a 20 Round AR-15 Mag. You could also get a 6.8 SPC Upper that will require a 6.8 Magazine. One other inexpensive solution is buy a CETME Rifle they are not expensive and are in 308 Cal. Despite any thing I have heard I have one and it works flawlessly. I later put H&K Green Hardware and it and EOTech Model 512 Holographic Sight. If you mount any type of optics or scope on it you will need a claw mount. Good Luck!

Sorry! Forgot something! Dies are available for the 458 SOCOM and several sources that load them other than Corbon! And they are easy to load. Also even legal in Indiana to deer hunt with!

Ya, i just really wanted one in a 20" barrel.
I thought that 16" was too short and would bleed too much energy.


BTW, You can get some good sized hogs with some hot heavy grain JSP 5.56 right?
like: http://www.sgammo.com/product/hornady/20-rds-223-hornady-barrier-penetrating-62-grain-jsp-83285

Just don't use 55 gr FMJ.

If you are talking about the 458 and the 16" barrel let me tell you from experience it will knock a pig dead in its track (DRT) at 100 yards. Dick Metcalf from the Outdoor Channel also shot one when I was with him in 2006and the pig was on the ground and hardly moved after the shot. We were using 340 Gr. Bullets. So in my opinion the 16 " is fine. I have a Rock River LAR-8 (308) with the 16" barrel and have shot deer up to 150 yards with it with zero problems. And it is handy to carry and maneuver when hunting. My LAR-8 is also a 1 MOA Rifle even in the 16 in. barrel. I am very impressed with both calibers even in the 16. And yes I have shot a many a hog with the 5.56 and 6.8 SPC

That's an awesome review of the .458
I have a RRA 458 upper in 16" I think it's fine for 150 yards after that might be too had to tell.

I was talking about the .308 in 20"
I already have a 16" AR 15, SCAR 17 and .458
just wanted something a little more long distance and found the wait was GRUELING... but i got it now! (i need to take a picture for this thread).

QUESTOIN: What ammo do you use for hogs with your 5.56? (brand / weight / jsp or jhp?)

Shameless reason to post the .458 socom again:
