Does the .223 caliber have enough mass and punching power to effectively kill a wild boar? This question has been debated for years. Countless hunting articles have been published imploring hunters to switch to a bigger hunting caliber. It’s been said that the hog’s thick skin and internal armor require a 30 caliber bullet or better. Do you agree? For those who do, please open your mind for what you are about to read. Bullet technology has come a long way over the years and I’m going to prove to all the haters that the right .223 hunting cartridge can do the job efficiently, effectively and with only one shot. My proof comes from Allegiance Ammunition’s newest creation, its 70g PowerStrike. And one wild hog!
There are numerous ways to hunt wild hogs, and here at the Spike Box you’re welcome to sit in a blind and wait to see what happens. What’s about to happen now is the polar opposite. It’s dawn in West Texas and my hunt partner and I are on hog patrol. Spike Box is a 94,000 acre working cattle ranch where wild hogs compete with the cows for wheat. In my numerous trips here, I don’t recall ever seeing so many cows. They don’t seem bothered by the hogs or us, but the quiet of the morning is about to be briefly shattered. In one of the few places where the wheat remains tall and lush, we’ve spotted hogs from the truck and we’re rolling on them, guns shouldered, pointing out the windows. Our guide calls this “Rodeo” and it’s about to wind up!
