Ever wondered what it would be like to go hog hunting with elephant guns? Well, these two guys in Florida did.
If you’ve ever wondered what a 750-grain bullet fired from a .577 Nitro would do to a feral hog, then you need to see this video.
Not only is a double rifle a stylish piece of gear for hunting dangerous game in Africa, but it is quite effective against feral hogs as well.
Watch the video below:
For reference, a typical .30-06 Springfield hunting bullet weighs 165-180 grains. Though this is not small by any means, it is dwarfed by the 293 gr bullet fired by the 9.3x74mm and is absolutely tiny compared to the 750-grain bullets that the .577 Nitro Express shoots.
Though that extreme level of power is not really necessary when hunting hogs, a .577 Nitro is just what the doctor ordered for dealing with a charging cape buffalo. Not surprisingly, a bullet that is designed to reliably stop a charging elephant has no trouble penetrating the entire length of a feral hog.
Not only did these guys get some good practice in prior to going on an elephant hunt, but they got literally a whole truck-load of bacon out of the deal as well!
