I am a new hunter also and will be going on my first hunt in Feb of 05. I am gearing up for the task now and was wondering what kind of bullet I should use out of my 308 Win.
So far I've been talked into buying a box of 165gn Nosler Partitions, a box of 180gn Nosler Silver Tips and now my other buddy that is new to this also is saying the Hornady SST 150gn is the way to go.
What do you experience hog hunters suggest for a 308 Win?
I will be going after a small meat pig. 100lbs but will shoot up to a 200lbs pig.
Maxium range I want to take my shot at is 200yards
Should I carry a sidearm?
Any suggestions or comments will be greatly appreciated.
