weapons for russian boar

Sniperwolf270, my main HOG RIFLE is a .338 mag model 70 Winchester but I do use on occasion 45/70 Marlin and have used a .458 mag with 450 grain bullets too. All of them put big hogs down with authority when hit in the right place mind you. I don't cotton to small caliber guns for taking big hogs in the wild! Now that is an accident wanting to happen and it will happen trust me. eye roll

Gun to use for hog hunting

I guide hog hunts every weekend and based off my experience the best gun for the job is a .223 150gr placed an inch below the ear hole...drops them dead every time and you won't tear up any meat in doin so.
