Best Gun For Boars?

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to be doing some boar hunting this year and I've been considering getting another rifle for it.

I currently have a Winchester 270 and I'm thinking it might be a little overkill for boars.

Just wondering what you guys use and if your got any suggestions?

Depends on the boar I'd say but on predator nation they droped one with a 25cal airgun

Safe to say I will not be hunting them with an air gun :)

Lets say for a boar within 400 lb range

I'd think any 30 cal be it 308 or 30-06 300 win mag would work or if it's up close a lever gun in 35 rem would be nice iv never shot a hog hell never seen one but I know all the rounds would work well.

.308 it kills everything. Generally I'd say dogs and a big friggin knife, but I aint jumping on a 400 lb boar. So again go with a .308.

I'd stick with the .270 unless you're just needing an excuse to buy a new rifle (been there myself).

I do need a excuse to buy a new rifle but my wallet doesn't take excuses.

Thanks guys guess I'll stick with the 270 for now
