This might be a no-brainer, but is the Alexander Arms .50 Beowulf good for feral hog hunting?
If you can find the ammo for it, or reload it yes. I've used one once for them
Anything designed to stop a truck at a military checkpoint should do fine on hogs lol. And I was recently at a bass pro shop and they seem to have a decent supply of ammo on the shelf for the .50. but yes that would knock them down no problem.
You might need a shovel to clean off the mess off a tree...
This is going to sound stupid, but am I the only one who wants to see a handgun made for them?
desert eagle .50
Beowulf is a far bit bigger.
Why would you waste your time w/ a hand gun in this .cal? Quick follow-up shots? Light recoil? Good accuracy?
It's like any other ridiculously over powered gun, you don't know why, but you want it.
And if makes you feel better, I like 9mm the best of any caliber.
How bout 500 S&W Magnum instead.
F*** it, .950 JDJ.
The .50 Beo would work and a few guys use the .458 as well. Personal preference I guess. I want to be able to shoot my firearms a lot therefore a less expensive round is more appealing. .300 BLK (my choice), 5.56, .308 are all goo choices from the reading I've done on hogs.
The 450 Bushmaster is actually more powerful with cheaper, easier to find ammo. You want the true "Thumper" get a 450 Bushmaster.
there's a certain cachet to saying " I has a 50"
Amen. When you pop off a round with a fifty at the range, everyone tends to stop and look. Try getting that reaction with a .117.
I agree completely! In in pistol and carbine calibers of course.
I want a 20mm handhannon.
