    Hey guys, I have a WASR10 (AK-47 clone) and was wondering if the 7.62x39 would be adequate for hogs? I fell very confident with it but wanted to get some other opinions! Thanks in advance guys.

    Should be. If .30-30 works, 7.62x39 will.

    7.62x39 is a hog caliber all day long. Line up some small ones and you'll get a two-fer so long as the bullet doesn't yaw.

    Can you get anything but FMJ in the 7.62 x 39?
