308 with a 12 gauge pump loaded with 00 buck. Just for that little piggy that wants to sniff your leg. I live in Texas and I've seen hogs at around 120-130 yards.

I'd personally load slugs. Never tried but I'm not too sure how well shot would penetrate the sheild.

Buck shot does work but is not a nock'um down killer even at shorter range. Killed a couple 30,35 years ago in florida with a tight shooting 12ga at close range. Still had to hunt them up as they ran a ways before die'n .Modern heavy weight slugs will do the job out to 125 or a bit more and farther with the sabots with the rifled barrel. Have any of you seen or tried these- Products A hunting buddy used a dupo 20 in his 20ga slug rifle to take a 170lb doe this year and one last year. Devestating damage from it and can shot 3" groups at 100 yards out of his H&R slugster.

What is a dupo 20? I don't think I've heard of that.

EDIT:

Nevermind, found it....

I'd say a shotgun works just fine. Seems to drop theses hogs on contact.
