Well I may take a bucket of watermelon rinds over to the 'hog hole' this afternoon and see if they are hungry! I am debating as to which gun to take. I want to try out the 223 62gr Fusions, but I do have the 308 ready to go too, and neither have 'drawn blood' yet. I am still a bit leary of the 223 but dying to see how the fusion ammo works. It is great in the 7-08 and the 308!

The hogs had not come to the feast of watermelon rinds as of 2AM so I called it quits!
Hogs-1, Jim-0 (this time)

I like my .223 for night hog hunting around lights sitting on my stand...I usually shoot around 30-40 yards with it...anything farther I use my 30-06 cuz it's much more accurate
