I've killed a couple of big hogs with a .22 lr with that shot (it was the only gun I had in the Jeep). You don't want to be just knocking dust off an animal that has tusks and is willing to use them.
    How does anyone feel about using a 12 gauge with a 3" 4 shot magnum for hunting hogs? I have used these shells for years and have taken turkeys and coyotes at 60 yards with them using one shot each. I have shot into a 3/4 inch sheet of plywood at 20 feet. It blew a 4" hole in that plywood. I have been hunting for hogs on the Mead properties in Southern Hocking County and Northern Vinton counties but have not run across any yet. I have always felt this shell will at 20 feet will bring down just about anything. Man a 4" hole might slow these hogs a bit. Do you folks believe their skulls are stronger than that sheet of plywood? Am I barking up the wrong tree in my thoughts and my confidence in my shells? I also have 3" 2 shot magnums. These are some butt kicking shells. Help me out here guys. Thanks.
