308 is plenty

the 308 is plenty for hogs at that weight considering i have kiled several hogs twice that weight with a marlin 30-30 using 170 gr core lokts and i hit them right behind the shoulders they either drop in there tracks or run about 50 yards. When i hunt them the hogs have n idea i ma around as i try to stay scent free and in some sort of a stand or behind a blind on the ground.
ballistically it is far superior to my old marlin so i would not hesitate to shoot a big hog with one i would use either a nosler partion or at least a 180 gr corelokt by Reminton though that is just my opinion hope i have helped
