Only have Gen1 and debating on getting a Suppresor.
What would be a good cheap rifle in a caliber that will put down pigs and axis.
I have a AR but don't want to change its current setup and it is a great truck gun that shoots sub moa.

Maybe a upper in 6.8 or .300 blackout?
Was thinking maybe a bolt gun in .308 or .300 black

Shots on property I will be using it on all shots will be under 100yds.

Ruger 77/44 is what I picked. I'll get mine when Form 4 jail ends.

I like the way you think. If I ever go suppressed, I was going this route as well. I like the idea of the heavy large diameter bullet when going subsonic.

Reports from the field indicate the 300 grain Hornady XTP @ 1050 fps works really well at ranges under 75 yards. The combo also has mild recoil, an important concern with NV. I'd love to go 458 Socom, but I can't believe that's NV safe for most gear. The action noise is also a strong negative.

Do a Ruger American Predator. It's a bolt action with scope rail and threaded barrel. For 100 yards, pick any caliber you want. For quiet subs, go with the 300 blk.
