    I have been pondering getting a 24, and dropping a 6" Lone Wolf Barrel (357 Sig) in it. Possibly to do some pig hunt and other pest hunting. Anyone tried this?

    I have not done it so perhaps I should not comment, but I am just curious where in Az can a guy shoot pigs.
    I know there are javelinas, but was not aware that there were any feral pigs.
    But anyway I am sure that if there are that your idea would work, its a wicked round and with that length of barrel it should be smokin.

    I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    I built a G20LS for the same reason. It's much easier to get an acceptable hunting bullet up to acceptable velocities. I have 2 different handloads for the 200gr WFNGC, one @ 1250fps, and the other @ 1360fps. I've even gotten an average as high as 1416fps, but the brass was starting to look stressed. If you're starting from scratch, I'd suggest starting with a G20/G20SF. Plus, you can shoot 9x25 Dillon. I have a handloaded 90gr XTP that averages 2050fps, and I'm working my way up to 1800fps with 124gr XTP's.

    Here's mine:

    Your idea should work. The velocity coming out of the barrel would be in 10mm territory. The extra barrel would make the speeds and pressure even more impressive. Getting a G20, would be another fine way to do it. But seriously use what you have. I've been tempted to get a Sig barrel for one of mine as well. Go for it!

    Sorry, I guess I was using my Tennessee lingo, as yes there are only javalinas here. I used to hunt wild pigs in the Smokies.

    Wouldn't .40S&W in a G-24 be enough to take javelina?

    I agree with the G20sf suggestion, it is an excellent gun and an excellent round! Last I checked, the lonewolf G20 longslides were backordered for the foreseeable future, but that was a while back. Even if they do have them, if you arent looking to spend too much, you could just buy the 6" barrel and stick it in your stock slide, and that should work great!

    .357 more velocity, and flatter trajectory. Oh, yeah and I reload .357.
