My favorite.... the BLR in .358 Win. sweeeet!!
Tnhunter; you forgot to mention above, my 2 favorite hog rifle calibers..... 357mag & 44mag.
I've taken more hogs w/ my Winchester Mod.94 44mag "Trapper" [& the 305gr FPPN in my signature] than I can remember. A short, light weight brush gun that uses the same caliber as the small arm I normally carry while hunting.
