Thanks for the excellent advice. My inclination starting on this question was one of the 7mm's, but was considering the .300 WM or WSM given the distance issue and the larger hogs being a tougher target than deer.
If I go with a gun in .300 mag that ends up in the 12 - 15# range with a muzzle brake
, how will that compare in recoil to regular field weight 7mm RM? Am I correct in thinking that a 12 - 15# total weight gun in one of the 7mm's with a muzzlebrake will not be dramatically different from what I am currently shooting (which I find to be very comfortable to shoot and practice with)?
Mike, thanks also for the advice on the scope as I definitely needed that advice too.
