Whilst not a 500, the 470 does a sterling job on Boar;
Got this hog with a 500 Jeffery, 570g TSX at 2300 feet. Shot him at 8 feet as he came out of the thicket approaching us. A little overkill
Thanks! I shot him between the eyes (a little to the right) as he walked out of the thicket coming toward us. The 570g TSX left a desert plate sized hole exiting his left ham, liquefying everything in the bullet path. My youngest son with me got an even bigger one that day, though it took three 150g Partitions from the 40 plus year old 270 I handed down to him to finally quiet him down. The first Partition dropped him though ... Hunting with your sons is just a joy ...
I have the same experience as Willem, Legia Brenneke slugs out of a Remington 870 with slug barrel.
It s an ideal combination when hunting in a densely wooded area, a short, light weapon for quick shots at short distances.
I honestly believe the best pig rifle is the rifle you have in your hands when you happen to see a pig!
I say that because most of the pigs I have killed, were taken when hunting for something other than pigs.
Like the day a couple months ago when I was deer hunting in South Texas and the pigs kept trying to run me over. Had to defend myself with a little Kimber in 308.
