Can it be done? Would a 55gr or a 69gr be a better bullet? FMJ or HP? If no on a 223 what about a 357mag out of a 4" barrel? Here is the story. I'm going hog hunting and I have three guns to choose from each with their own downfall. AR15= A tack driver with .5 MOA groups out to 300yards but under powered for pigs. 357 Revo= Enough power but limited to 50 yards for a well placed shot. 30-30 (borrowed)= Lots of power but not a great shooter even out to 100 yards. We are talking 6-7 inches which just stinks for a rifle. Its a very old rifle with irons and no way to mount some glass for better shooting. If I took the 30-30 it would be for shots out to 50 yards or less and I can do that with my Revo which I would rather take. If I take the AR15 I can make a well place shot just under the sholder out at 100 yards. If its 50 yards or less I can unholster my 357 for the shot under the arm. My hunting buddy will have a 7mm rifle if things go bad with my shot. What should I bring? Thanks everyone.
