Eastern NC Hog Hunting

Postby wally » Wed Sep 16, 2015 11:20 pm

I was thinking of using my 35 Whelen but I think that, although it might work, might be a bit much. Maybe my 45LC Lever with a suitable handload such as a 270gr over nice bunch of H110?

What would be a happy medium for a firearm on these critters? I know that people use everything from spears to 460 Weatherby but what would do the trick without getting crazy

I'd take my 35 whelen as that is the lightest fastest handling rifle I have at the moment plus I shoot it well.
Sometimes you have to ignore the "good idea fairy"

Please stop telling me "That can't be done" while I'm doing it, it's just plain annoying.
