Nice racks are much better. You can grab both sides of the rack to help stabilize while mounting.

I've always been advised 223 is not appropriate for wild pig hunting. Not powerful enough / big enough / etc.

From the CDFW's guide on hunting wild pigs ( https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.a...D=23231&inline ) all .22-range calibers like the .223 are NOT recommended.

However, for interest of anyone being dead set on it, CDFW also gives guidelines on how much power is needed. So if there's bullets/rounds out there anyone's considering, following is what's recommended. Notice it's somewhat a no-starter because one of the req's is at least a bullet diameter of .24 /6mm :

"Appropriate centerfire rifle cartridges to be used for lighter weight wild pigs (50 to 90 pounds) should have at least 800 foot-pounds of energy remaining at 100 yards. This assumes reasonably accurate bullet placement, using bullets that are at least .24 (6 mm) caliber and weighing a minimum of 100 grains. For heavier wild pigs (over 90 pounds), bullets should have at least 1200 foot-pounds of energy remaining at 100 yards."

Bullet designs have changed a LOT in recent years. Especially lead free. Lighter .223 bullets fragment completely on heavy animals. Where as the Barnes TSX expands to almost .5" and has nearly 100% bullet retention. http://www.m4carbine.net/showthread....SX-Performance

Check the trajectory difference for the two rounds at 200 yards. Then 300, plus velocity. Copper needs velocity. The 105 or so is best for the Grendel and copper.

I'll check my reload data, but I want to say I push my 100gr ttsx up to 2800fps with the 6.5 Grendel.

I'm getting out of the AR Hunting game, I don't want to deal with the new laws. I went though this myself, I ended up buying a 6.8 SPC Upper, which I like a lot, but which I am selling.
