    I haven't but I want to. I'll take my 06, it doesn't have to be a boar, a sweet little sow will be just fine.

      Barksdale Air Force Base Louisiana deer season 1976. 30-06 03A3, Hornady 130 grain bullet sizzaling at the muzzle at 3300ish fps range 150 someodd yards. That 130 worked really good with one shot on that Ol’boar it did, big sucker too!

        I have killed feral hogs with everything from a muzzleloader and a patched round ball to hand guns to archery equipment. If I am shooting them while they are raiding crop fields I use a 30/06 with 165 grain Nosler Accubonds at a little over 2850.

        If I'm woods hunting them I use a traditional style sidehammer percussion or flintlock muzzloader loaded with a patched round ball.

          I shot two back in the seventies on an island in the Mississippi River. Actually they were feral hogs and one was a sow. A .357 handgun shot to the head killed each of them from about 15 feet as I was sitting in a tree stand.

            My personal favorite is 12GA rifled slugs out of my Mossberg 500. But a close second would be with a bow.

              I have shot one with a 325 WSM, which was more than enough but is the only thing I have above .22-250. I have also dispatched them in the trap with my buddy's 9mm.

                I shot one in Alabama with my 257 Weatherby Magnum using 117 Hornady round nose bullets. Fell like lightning had struck him.

                                I understand the reason someone would pick the heavier bullets. However, heavier bullets cause greater recoil and will affect recovery time and may result...

                                I wouldn’t spend that much on a 10/22 but I might on a bolt gun. For that kind of money I expect some style to go with it, of the Cooper or Annie level....

                                Would you spend $900 for a Ruger 10/22 to shoot 300yds ? A little over 1" at 100 and a little 0ver 6" at 300yds. Lapua and SK ammo used....

                                I like the Remington Golden Saber Black Belt 147gr 9mm (not +P) and the 180gr in .40. Check out the statistics. Some LEO friends always suggest the heavy...
