    MY favorite is my marlin 336 in 35 remington, it has the shock and the power to do the job {:eek:)
    PS I use the 200 grain powershoks for the best results.

    Anything other than a 22 rimfire should be okay. Make sure you have well made bullets in the smaller cals, but otherwise pick your poison. They are all good.

    Many, many hogs have been killed with the lowley old .22LR. Personally I think anything bigger would be a better choice to do the job. Whisper air guns is advertizing their new high powered air gun on TV by shooting, and killing a hog. Just don't use 00 Buck! You can't get enough penitration with that load. Hogs is mean, when I shoot one I want him to lay down and go to sleep on the spot!
