Lets say i got a group of pigs and they all line up shoulder to shoulder..

where would be the best place to aim to possibly kill 2 or more pigs at once?

Depends on the bullet construction, I'd say. You're most likely to get a pass through with a neck shot, but its obviously easier to line up a body shot.

Here's a few Quigley shots I've made on hogs. You can slow the video down to .25, and see where I hit them.

I was using a .308 165gr soft point. I try for the neck/head.



Another.



And another. This one wasn't as clean, and I found the second hog the next morning. It had run about 75 yards or so after the shot. You can see it headed off, as the last hog to exit.

I have done it through the shoulder, neck, and head. Neck would be the way to go for the impact on the first hog. Works better with younger hogs than older hogs.

My favorite twofer, long distance and accidental...

Agree with cartridge and bullet selection making a difference. With the 30/06 and ABs it shouldn't be a problem getting it through bodies. My 62gr M855 I've tried head shots, which prove more challenging to get aligned on fidgety hogs.
If trying to Quigley shoot effectively I may need to step up to the 6mm 95BTs out of a 243 or 160NPs from a 7mmRM

Love all of 00 Spy's work!!

Was also watching a video on youtube posted by a young guy - I think in Texas - and he was shooting from a tree stand with a shotgun. From his elevated position, with 00 buckshot, he was able to get 3 or 4 in one shot. Then got two more as they ran. If close and elevated, that seems to be a pretty good tactic.

I take Neck or broadside depending on what the hogs do.
