After seeing this video I seriously consider buying a rifle with this caliber.

Cool video. There is another floating around with a guy using a Sauer 202 that makes this guy look like a rookie. Not sure of caliber. That one is a hammer for sure.

Just figured out why pigs don't charge by me and pile up dead........I don't have a Sauer and I haven't been putting enough paper towels in my nose!

Could be you do not have a bunch of people driving the hogs to you also. But making those shots is not easy. Try shooting game running through timber and see how many trees you hit, the results might surprise you

Have to pick the shots and let the hogs run into the crosshairs.

I have a 9.3x62 and it pretty much hammers anything that it hits. Mine is a Ruger Hawkeye African and its very accurate and not unpleasant to shoot, similar to a 30-06 with super performance loads and doesn't weight a ton. Not a screamer as far as speed, but gets it done for sure. I just wish that I had the skills of those gentlemen.
