    TD,

    Since the ballistics are better than the 5.56/223 round they are good for hogs. I have shot several with the 5.56. But I also have personaly witnessed one shot kills on deer at 150 yards with the 6.8. And 75 yard -100 yard kills on pigs. Of course I am a shoot the pig behind the ear guy! Not that the 6.8 is my prime pick for deer caliber but it will work well enough. And will work on pigs!
    I also the 6.5 Grendel is a fine caliber and I like it very well. But the 6.8 ammunition is much easier to come by over the 6.5 and the 6.8 is good to get that extra over the 5.56. :)

    The 6.8 SPCII is a geat hog rd. I put it right up there with my 458 Socom. I have been using one for about 4 months now and I have taken hogs up to 300 lb with it and it works great. I use the SSA 85 gr TSX bullet.
