What is the best caliber for hog hunting?
Thanks. Good Hunting!
My choice would be the versatile .30-06. I use my Browning BLR for all my hunting excursions.
That depends, how big are these hogs and how far are you shooting. My frinds have used a 3030 and 308 marlin exp. Me I would use my trusty and rusty 3006.
i agree with everybody so far, i pick a 308 if i were hunting. however if your ever in one of those ranches, like i have been in, we have used 223's in the ear at night while enjoying a cocktail or 2.
yea 308, 3006, 30-30,
I go with the .50BMG, no just joking, 30-06.
The versitility of the .30-06, especially if one hand loads, enable it to be used effectively on most game, including the biggest in this hemisphere.
There also is enough variety in the marketplace to enable the right load for the right game to be purchased.
I will have to side with Marlin on 30-06 that rifle is all the weapon you will need to take down any game in North America. That baby has some remarkable knock down power.
Anything that is a full sized Cartridge that is about .30 Cal
.308, .30-06, 7.62x54R, 7.5 French, 7.5 Swiss, .303 Brit, 6.5x55, 8mm Mauser and my fav 30-30.
P.S. I only listed those that I personally own.
.416 Rigby. If it's worth doing, it's worth over-doing...
Well heck, USMC, there's always the .600 Nitro Express.
Did you say "Hog"hunting, not rhino or elephant?
Or large pirate ships?
I usualy use the 8mm mouser. I like the range on it cuz me personally I dont wanna be too damn close to a P/Oed pig.
If you guys ever come across the right bullet that will kill and automatically clean the animal leaving you only the skinning to do,,,,,,,, well that the one i want to use. ya let me know if you find, kay.
The 30-06 is a great round that is for sure. I like to hunt my hogs with a 358 Winchester, using a 200 grain bullet, it leaves the hogs DRT (Dead Right There) a 3 inch S&W 686 as a back up / close range gun with 158 grain jacketed soft point is always in the shoulder holster while hog hunting.
