I to don't like tracking hogs so this is the way I went.
Bolt action = 338 RCM (A 325 WSM necked up to 338 ) factory ammo is available. I built mine on a mod 7 Remington for a handy/compact carry and it will roll them shot behind the shoulder.
AR15 = For fast follow up shots I went with the 450 bushmaster. It uses a 250 grain bullet @ over
2200 ft/sec for almost 2800 ft/lbs energy. I have a green illuminator laser for night hunting and
this thing is a hammer.
I was tired of having to make head shots (Especially Running) and have been very happy with
these two rifle combinations.
