I've shot hogs up to 300 lbs with everything from a 22-250 for a 7mm weatherby mag and never had a problem losing any. I've probably taken more hogs with my 243 than anything. There not as tough as there built up to be, especially if you hit them in the ear. Just stay away from aiming at the forehead. If you do, the 300 win mag won't be enough. I had always heard that, but was kind of sceptical until I shot one in the forehead with a 270 using 130 gr boattails. I turned and ran like I had shot it with a pellet gun. I dropped it with a shot behind the shoulder and when I skinned it out later, I found a perfectly mushroomed bullet that penetrated about 2 inches
