Re: Used Excals - Anyone ever notice this...

Re: mechcanical verses fixed blade on pigs

Stay with a fixed BHd. less chance for something to go wrong. Wild pigs will hurt you when they are wounded. Montec or Slicks are what I use and what I recommend to visiting hunters.

which calibur

I've shot every calibur mention sofar. If your recoil sensitive like me due to injuries and just one rifle. The 260 Rem and the 6.55 x55 are your best choice. Better ballistic than a 243, much better bullet choices,retains velocity and knockdown at exteme ranges. Oh yea the 7mmo8 not bad either.
