Hog Hunt Prep: Caliber Wars 460 Magnum Versus?

Trying to decide what I want to use for an up and coming hog hunt. This will be shot from a blind down into a valley. Guided tour.

I have access to 500S&W and 460Magnum as I really want this to be a handgun hunt.

I reloaded up some of Matt's Hard Cast 280gr


Even though they are Gas Checked I did not push them to hard


I do not think I go great accuracy because these did not have a crimping grove. This is my fault I should have paid attention when they were ordered and instead got the 315gr with double crimp groove.

I will have a pair of shooting sticks to shoot from.
Yes I need more practice for sure.
My first go at it with the 460Magnum across the chronograph

Next up will be the 500Magnum then depending on the results and my comfort level I will pick one and practice with before leaving.
Which one do you like?

All I can say is, those are some hand cannons! Take both switch out, and enjoy the hunt.

You might just scare a pig to death, or at least have it faint long enough to use your K-BAR.

Hey, devil dog! Having shot a hog or two in my time, I will say either will do the deed. Personally, I'd shoot the lighter recoiling of the two, hogs are not Godzilla. Either revolver will be overkill.
