Monday a good friend of mine came over to go check water with me. Richard and I were pulling up to one of the water holes when I saw some hogs at the water. I stopped the truck and the two of us got out and walked up to the barns. I got out with what I had ready which was a 17 HMR. Richard had his 243 Win. I'd seen they were staying so I went back to the truck and got my AR-15 in 223 Rem. Got back up to the barns and made a plan to take two of them. I was on one side of the barn and Richard was on the other side. I take one on the left side and he take one on the right side. So with a ten count in play. I lined up one one through two fences and finished counting 7........8.......9........10! I let the AR bark. And sent a 55gr soft point down range. It found it's mark just below the right eye. Richard didn't have a shot due to the hogs moving before we got to the ten count. I will add this. I am not a big fan of the 55gr bullets. I have been trying some again. They do work good but I like a lighter bullet. A good time was had by all. I don't think the hog did but that's ok.

Well done Clint.

Personally, I think the 55gn in a .223 Rem is getting close to the best all round projectile weight. A mate who is a bit of a .223 not uses 52gn, 55gn, 62gn and 69gn...but his "go to" is usually the 55gn. When shooting hogs, I would be loathe to drop below 55gn...then bugger can be real tough, and the heavier the bullet, the more chance of dropping them cleanly.

I have drop a lot of hogs with Win 45gr HP. in both 223 Rem. and 22-250 Rem. I love Serria's 60gr #1375. in both as well. With great service in both cal. on hogs and coyotes,bobcats and Mt. Lions.
