    Hello. I just got a bushmaster carbon 15 and want to know if anyone has any suggestions on best type of ammo for the rifle? Primary use will be stopping pigs in central Texas.

    Any other info will be appreciated.

    Is it a .223 or 5.56? What's the barrel twist?

    You can browse here The Hunting Shack, Inc. - 223 Rem. / 5.56x45mm

    But barrel twist will determine the round you ultimately choose.

    Is it a Type 97? I'd guess 1:9 twist.

    Here you go! HSM 223 Rem 60 gr. V-Max
    There may be better rounds out there, but this is what I would shoot. Kinda light for pigs, IMO.
