    Use the 170 gr Rhino in the 275 Rigby, great bullet

    I sometimes like to look at Utube hunting videos when I can get this pad to work and got a good chuckle when I watched a Florida guide telling everyone how they should have a 375H&H with an a frame bullet to kill a piggy and how dangerous they are.

    A minute later he shoots one in the shoulder and it runs
    off.

    He then starts talking again and says," see! I told you how tough they are they don't even stop when hit with an elephant round".

    It looked to be a 100 pound porker that was just shot with a bullet that whistled through him like crap through a goose.

    If a shooter can hit his mark and uses the correct bullet for the size and weight of game he won't ever have to do much chasing.

    Hogwash!

    A 300 gr Swift A frame from a 375 H&H, will kill any pig with the right shot placement, period.

    No kidding.

    What I wrote is what is on you tube. Search it out . " Florida guide shoots hog" would be a good place to start. It's unfortunate that he's just self proclaimed expert on all things . But just because I wouldn't shoot hogs to eat with a 375 doesn't mean that everyone else can not.

    Any thing comming out of a 375 will easily kill a hog. They just ain't that tough.



    I use .a 223 or a 6.5 Grendle and they all take a nap.
