I have a Winchester 30-30 and it's one of my favorites, but then my 300BLK would do the trick too.
I've used a 7mm Rem Mag to good effect.
My choices for pigs are:
Marlin 1895 45-70
Marlin 336 30-30.
My rifles have scopes because of cataract issues.
Whichever you choose, put the slug right behind the ear. If you look at the body of a pig, the heart and lungs are not where you think they are. Miss the target and you get to hunt a wounded piggie in the bush.
That's solid advice but if you put a big round its shoulder, it'll drop and you can make a follow up shot too.
I’d use a shotgun with slugs. Open sights at 100 yards aren’t a prob.
Wow. Please tell me they were taken by a 30-30 or a 44mag. I believe in those rounds and been wanting to get one.
Those are wart hogs. Probably taken in a caliber that ends in Rigby
I have killed plenty with both .44 and 30-30. Both are absolutely adequate and effective for pigs.
Guess I'm too traditional American... .308win.
