G'day to WA,

I don't shoot 338 so can't help with ammo, but as for eating, there all edible. I love wild pork, it has so much more flavour than grain fed, so i perfer under 30kg pigs.

The problem people are having with wild pork is Brucelosis, this is a nasty disease and is transferable to humans, the solution is to make sure your pork is well cooked, not rare or medium, but well done, I also never mince wild pork to reduce risk as bacteria are only on the outside of a steak/chop but can be mixed all the way through mince.

Hope this helps

Hi rob Winchester and another brand I think its called highlander. I ring cleavers and get best price and quote that in shops over here for all my reloading and they usually match it. We never eat wild pig in summer as they eat anything when the crops are gone ie dead sheep cattle etc. This time of year they are really tasty and we always freeze the meat for 1 month as this kills any worms.
