Check with Dan at Gun Connection. Someone in his last hog hunting party used a 16" .300BLK for a hog. I do not remember if it was a CMMG or S&W upper. They were using supersonic ammo.

My oldest son shot his first boar with a S&W M&P15 chambered in 300 Blackout . He was successful, but shot placement and projectile choice is critical on the larger hogs. I am very satisfied with the S&W. I have sold several of the CMMG & AAC 300 blackout uppers and we have been getting good range reports. We have been getting good feed back on the Daniel Defense M4V5's and Ambush rifles, too.

Last time I went hog hunting I went on your recommendation to go to the Spartan Hunting Preserve

I would think for hogs, .308 would be a better choice; or a traditional 30-30.

Although, I saw a show on Discover channel where GA Park Rangers were using .223 ARs from a truck to drop wild hogs at night.

Its all about shot placement , behind the ear in the neck my .223 AR took a nice sized hog right down.

Supersonic 125 gr .300BLK is almost in the same league as the 7.62x39 using a 123 gr hunting bullet. Muzzle velocity may be 100fps slower but the numbers I have seen don't list what length barrel either round was fired from.
