I would not recommend buckshot for a hog - deer okay.
Get out the Rem 870 or Mossy 500.
Slap on a 18" to 20" deer barrel.
Add some fiber optic rilfe sights.
And slap a few of these in the magazine tube:
200 ft lbs at 50 yards!
Just updating my Rem 870 hunting slug gun with Mossy Oak furniture and an Aimtech saddle mount and a 40mm red dot scope for 0-70 yard shots:
Scope mount similar to below:
Good for hogs or deer.
Going black-tail deer hunting around Oct 11th!!!!!!!!
Hate paying $5/lb for beef.
I have had great results with underwood ammo. Both the 255gr hardcast at 45acp +p cruising at 925fps it'll punch through or the lighter and faster fmjfn. Underwood also has a 185gr jhp that I've used when a pig opportunity came up unexpectedly, but the 185gr jhp is a +p from underwood at about 1200fps, works great on deer!!!
One more thing to think about. With the 45acp and typical SD ( JHP ) you don't need all that expansion. The SD JHP in 45acp are designed for us humans and not for a grean mean machine , that ressemble a tank with 4 legs, long tails and ears
yes, a few people claim to take hogs with 45acp but I haven't seen any that have done this with fair to good results.
