When I was a young lad in the late 70's without a doubt the only gun to buy was the Ruger 44 semi auto rifle. 44 magnum with an 18 inch barrel is a killer. It didn't matter how big the Russian boars were. Every shot was always quick when you are hunting in thick wet jungle

My main hog gun was a SKS running 150gr subs, but that was hunting over dogs (bailers) and the majority of pigs I was hitting are under 150lb



Nowadays I’m just hitting em with a 308 tikka with no dogs with a more spot and stalk approach

All done with her and ready to pop some hogs. 1894
Just got this ol girl, 16.5” 44 mag with ghost ring sight setup. Ordered a aimpoint T2 just waiting for it to come in. Should be quick and handy for close up work!

I'd take pretty much anything I have in the safe after hogs from .223 on up. Killed two this past spring with a 5.56/.223 AR and another one with .30/30 lever action.

Well lately it has been a model 7 in 7-08 slinging 140 gr. Patitions at 2600 fps. 3 power old school weaver with a post reticle. Light handy and seems to do a pretty good job on everything I shoot it at.

So I'm getting my hog hunting rigs set up for this year and I was curious to see what everyone else uses?

I myself use a Marlin 45-70 and .45 Colt cowboy rifle. For more serious hunts I like to use my 6.5 Grendel but I'm going to be selling that off soon for a bolt action. Not because the round isn't capable, just because I miss the action of a Rem 700.

If you like the Remington 700 action check out the Bergara B14 line of rifles.
