OK, finally the big hunt is upon me...I'll be bringing my .357 python, .40 Glock, and my AR. Ammo I have on hand: Black Hills 62 gr softpoint, 62 gr BlackHills Match, 55gr Lake City, 62 gr M855- --- What would you guys use, and why? My shots will be taken at 25-50 yards, in thick cover. [i]Will post pics on Sunday evening if someone can tell me where to find FREE, EASY pic hosting.[/i]

There a post on this in the ammo forum. TheRedGoat uses SA surplus ammo to great effect on hogs. [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=16&t=142781[/url]

62gr Softpoint. That is the best choice you mentioned. Any of them will work in a head shot, but the FMJ stuff might not do enough damage in a less than good shot. If you are hunting on foot & the pig is moving as well, you may need softpoints. I recomend an SKS over the AR in a swamp hunt. Bigger bullet & if you drop in in the swamp you arent't as concerned.

Still looking for somewhere to host the pics... Help! Also, I will be using some hot 158 gr Speer HP loads for the .357 and some 155 gr Speer Gold Dots in the .40- although I would prefer to use the 180gr or 165gr, but I don't have any now. :( I can't wait!

Is wild hog really any good?[:\] I'm not a hunter but if it's as good as pork from the store and it's for the most part free I may start. The only thing is I'm told it has bugs or something in the meat,is this true?

Wild hog is BETTER than store-bought pork because it is more lean, and has a better flavor if prepared and cooked properly. If the meat actually has bugs in it, it is because the meat has been stored improperly.
