I have done some hog hunting with my SOCOM. Its still heavy, well over 9 pounds, and chunky. In no way does it handle like a Marlin carbine.
Still, with the Federal 150 grain Classic SP, its effective. I find that I take it more often if I am going to be stand hunting in low light.
As I said earlier, it will work as a hunting rifle, but its certainly not made for it.
