I own a winchester 73 reproduction in 45 Colt. I have been seriously considering taking it instead of my 338. A bolt on my first pig hunt as the idea of hunting with a Historical reproduction just appeals to me. The average range (I am told) we will be shooting at will be less than a hundred yards and in thick cover. I realize the range will have to be about 75 yards or less. Is the 45 Colt adequate for this or should I stick with the 338? In addition is the Winchester73 action strong enough for hunting loads such as the Cor Bon stuff? Anyone knoweledgable in this area?
