First, I have NEVER hunted large game, let alone dangerous game. I have only hunted birds and varmints. I do not like wheel guns or lever actions. My brother in law and I have decided to start hunting larger game (pig and hopefully elk) and I've been asking questions here and there and researching on the web. When I tell people I am going to hunt pigs with my 30-06 and my 45 as back up, I invariably get told... 1) "You better get something faster than a bolt action, otherwise that pig will run your *** over." 2) "Get an autoloader, because since you are new to hunting there is a good chance you will need to take multiple shots." 3) "Don't carry that 45 you'll only piss it off" 4) "Get a bigger upper for you AR and get a bigger backup" Can you guys help me out here. I bought the 30-06 to hunt elk and deer with and truthfully I am worried about the speed of a second shot with a bolt action. I've been very seriously considering getting a 458 Socom upper, but is it really necessary? What is fact and fiction with pigs?
