    450 vs German Piggies

    450 wins 🙂

    Got two today on a small impromptu driven hunt with a small crowd.
    Both were DRT 😜
    First one I only saw the ears and tail over a bramble thicket and the 350 Hdy FP went through the brambles like butter, clean hole no tumbling, piggie went down on the spot.
    Second one was clear shot no obstacles and it also just tumbled down the hill.

    I did change my shooting a bit and hit them both closer to the shoulder, worked like a charm.

    I think my 1895M is definitely a keeper now.

    Hey Mightytall - I'd say those wild swine met their match in both you and the .450 Marlin. Thanks for posting!

    Jealous! I've only killed paper with my 450. Good job of Mak'in Bacon.

    overkill 450 marlin. I hate those freaking pigs. We got them all over the place. Tried to get rid of them few years ago. Few bubbies spend one week shooting them and donate them to church. A total of 68 hogs from 65lbs to 300+lbs, we worked are butts off. The following weekend show up in camp, them hogs was all over camp. Firefight began and when the smoke cleared 6 of them didn't make it to the hole in the fence. I think that was the first time the I have to reload the MP5. In morning we found one small piggy locked up in the generator room.

    I took a 350lb Boar a few years ago, and sinse I had a 450M 1895 that I bought for bear hunting a few years ago, I decided it would work well for this application. I was right, it is a real thumper. I have taken Black Bear, Hog, many whitetail and never had a dissatisfied customer yet!
