Are hogs your #1? If so I suggest looking into the .300 AAC Blackout. Barrels are readily available while ammo is in trickle mode until after Shot Show. Supersonic ammo is going for $11.99 a box of 20 for 123gr brass cased Remington factory loads.
Wilson, AAC, are making a .300 AAC BLK upper along w/ a few botique-ish shops. You can order the parts and have the upper assembled by ADCO for around $90 if Im not mistaken.
Theres other options as well. 6.8 will work but is more expensive.
.223/5.56 will work but I think it would be more economical and much easier to use something heavier.
Whatever you choose buy a .22 upper for paper. Save the good stuff for the hogs.
