My rifle is a M98 action 30/06AI using a 165gn Sierra Game King in front of 61.5gn of AR2209.

Never bothered to open the pigs up but they can have anything upto a 1" or more on some of them and then if they're covered in mud it makes them a bit more "bullet proof" as it were.I missed a bigger pig what we call a razorback.
These pigs are generally a lot bigger than these pigs and have a real big set of shoulders and then sort of taper off to the back legs and generally have the disposition of a redhead with permanent PMS,regards

Good combo, I hope you get the chance to get back and get that razorback.

Different story here as all wild pigs are shot and gutted and taken to chillers where they're then either exported overseas for human consumption after being checked for any diseases or end up as pet food tucker.
Most pigs here are either shot or dogged and sticked with a knife by most of us but for the export market they must be shot and then gutted on the spot with the lungs and kidneys left in for inspection at the chillers and those accepted are paid by the kilo,regards
