Going hog hunting for the first time Friday night. Boss is taking me to his club. I was going to take my 30-30 since the moon was going to be bright enough to see through the scope. Now the forecast is calling for possible rain, and most likely overcast. My father was going to loan me his ruger mini 14 that has a good night vision scope. We only have fmj Ammo and a handful of that hollow point match Ammo that really does not expand much. Is a .223 Adequate? we will be hunting open area, and more than likely a head shot will be used. guys at work say fmj is fine for head shot.
