We do have a big oversupply of feral animals in Australia that have been introduced over the last 200 hundred + years so anything from a .22 up to a.458 is used on the different critters.
I've used my 30/06AI and 165gn GameKings for years on pigs,goats,deer and 2 years ago on a cull hunt in our Northern Territory my son also used a .270 CMC Mountaineer with 130gn GameKings to get his 1st 2 pigs whilst I shot my 1st feral donkey's and feral horses plus wild dogs and all were bang flops with the 165gn GameKing.
I generally clean the barrels out with Sweet's to get rid of the copper fouling and have recently started using Brakeclean(used by mechanics to wash down brake pads/shoes) to get rid of carbon fouling in the barrel to great effect and it dries out. I generally spray this into the barrel and give it a couple of seconds before running a couple of patches down the bore.
