That's a nice lookin pig you got there. Where in SC did you get him. I'm from the Savannah GA area, and lookng to shoot some pigs next year when I get home.

May seem like a dumb question but since the little black gun is made in alot of calbers lately.. you take that pig with .223?

This is BloodbrotherBob a buddy on another Forum and the Rifle he put together.

It is 99% DPMS Panther Arms AR-15 / 223Rem using 55gr standard soft point bullets. It has a Barska 3x9x42mm scope with illuminated recticle and 500 yard bullet drop compensator. The stock is from a colt. It has alot of attitude packed in it as well!

Mine was estimated at 260#
Standard 55gr softpoint which busted his rib on the way in and lodged in the hyde on the far side, it mushroomed nicely.

Thanks, I took him in Abbeville county near Lake Russell

Rebel Hog is running a similar setup to mine. I built my lower from a forging and added a complete rifle kit from J.T. Surplus (now called Delta I think). It is a .223 model and I have a 30 mm BSA red dot with a homemade adapter that allows me to slip my nightvision monocular in behind it for nighttime varmit hunts.

I also am shooting Remington PSP 55 grain. Bullet broke a shoulder, backbone and still passed through.
