    Raging Hunter

    So I'm looking to hunt hogs with the Raging Hunter .44 with 8" barrel. I'll be in a stand with a feeder about fifty yards away and feel it should be pretty much a straight on shot. Anyone out there take a hog down with a handgun? Any suggestions. Oh, I have a 2.5X34 scope on the gun.

    From what I have read, it depends upon the size of boar, but I’d do 300 gr bullets such as Hornady XTP, on the higher end of the charge fo get 1300:FPS.

    Cast Performance 320gr. WFN hard cast bullets and run a hole through that hog from which it will never walk away. BTW, which 2.5x34 scope are you using?

    It's an NC Star and a 2.5X30, not 34, my bad. I put 50 rounds through it yesterday with the scope on and so far so good... Thanks for the advice on bullets, I'll keep you in the loop when I take one down.

    I picked up my 6.75" barreled Raging Hunter today and can't wait to shoot it. I have the scope rings for it, but I'm still waiting on a 2X scope to be delivered. I'd also like to find a bandolier style holster to fit it if I can. Should be just the ticket for whitetail deer!
