    I have the opportunity to hunt hogs in Georgia for a couple of days. I have a couple of .223s and a .243. Thinking the .243 will be fine, what do the pros think?

    .243 will be fine as long as you're using a proper bullet. I hog hunted in Arkansas a few years ago and using an AR15 chambered in 6.8 spc. I dropped a big hog in it's tracks with a head shot. The bullet passed through and killed a piglet as well lol.

    .243 is just fine I pop a few every year with my 5.56. Bottom of Earhole them and you are golden no muss no fuss looking for them.

    Shoot them in the head or spine and either will be fine. I've killed a ton of hogs in Georgia in the past few years and learned to not shoot behind the shoulder unless it's the only shot you have. A green or red led light mounted on your scope would be helpful as well as they tend to be nocturnal during the hot months. Good luck
