I have always used my SKS but just recently bought a AR in a 6.8 and just to play around with a little long range action a Remington 700 Police Tactical in .308. But the SKS is by far the cheapest ammo i have found for picking off hogs and other varmints.

Yeah they are awesome guns! I got mine for $100 and it needed a new stock and gas tube. Needless to say i went all out with it and it is by far the funnest shooter i have!

i would think that would be perfect but.............i watch that dumb sons of guns last night where they ...cough...cough..made a larger cal. AR. My 5.56-.223 will go threw .375 plate steel at just over 100ds. why would you need more for a pig.:confused013:
