I've got .223, 6.5 creedmoor, .260 rem, .308, 300 win mag, 9mm, .45 lc, and wonder what the preferred is for piggies at 1-300 yds.
All about the same level of confidence and I'd love to hear favorite cartridges for piggies in TX between Christmas and New Years.
I have killed hogs with everything from a 22 LR to a 45 cal and feel that a minimum caliber is 6.5 for the size of hogs we take. Less will kill them but sometimes you need to drop them where they stand or you will lose them.
We like to eat them and blend them with deer meat so we are very selective in what to take. with larger calibers the chances of losing them go away as long as you shot is true. Also If you encounter
a big boar that needs to be taken out of the Sounder you have the weapon for DRT.
With lighter/smaller cartridges you may have to track them and this can sometimes get dicey if they are still alive and not happy with you.
