Is there any Ar-15 rounds that are good or even excellent for North American hogs?
5.56 and up. Hogs, in spite of the Syfy Channel and it's movies, aren't bullet proof and one doesn't need a Barret to take one down. Good shot placement and you have bacon.
Is there another reason to hunt hogs? What? Oh. Sorry. Sausage.
MMMmmmm..... Bacon and Sausage on a English Muffin with Cheese.
LOL...........any 5.56 or .223 will do. Down here, the ol' boy's just use their pocket knives to dispatch the porkers after the dogs corner them.
A good bowie knife is pretty effective, as long as you don't scare easy
Got us a Bear Gryllis here!! Kills a hog with a bowie knife and drinks his own urine!!
lol never tried drinking my own urine, i did take down a hog with a bowie once though. It is a bit less badazz when you mess your pants in the process however
You never admit that!! You just tell them you never even got out of your lawn chair, which you made from the bones of the bear you killed with a stick.
Actually it was a hammock i made from the intestines and sinew of an african elephant i killed with a slingshot . But i like the way you think
my vote would have to be .458SOCOM
but in lieu of that, if you have a whisk or ladle handy, have at it
Whereas I was mentioning what I'd consider the minimum decent caliber, I won't disagree with the .458SOCOM either. Definitely have the power to do it.
You guys are making my hungry with the bacon and sausage posts...
If you do not have a choice of a larger caliber, which I would recommend.
My suggestion would be a load with a Barnes TSX or Nosler Partition
(if Nosler makes a .224 Partition?) I reload and us TSX bullets for
24.5 gn of H335 topped with a Barnes TSX. It works with a head shot (behind the ear) but I prefer a good heart shot. DRT!
A .40 s&w round will do it.
Anything with a Nosler, Barnes, Hornady, etc. ballistic tip. If you do your part, the bullet will do its part, and you'll have bacon and sausage as an end result.
