    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:
    .458 Socom
    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.
