Even a .22 short to the soft spot behind the ear will kill a pig. A .243 is quite sufficient for both deer and pigs that are found in FL - as long as are good with shot placement. That being said however, I do tend to prefer a little heavier bullet than the light stuff that a .243 shoots.

If you are recoil adverse and want a more effective round, the felt recoil of a 7mm-08 (big brother to a .243) is only a tad more noticible and you get a much more versitile 140grn bullet.
