Feral swine are responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in agricultural damage each year. They can spread dozens of pathogens and parasites, damage the environment, and threaten drivers and domesticated animals alike. They also have thick hides, can weigh hundreds of pounds, and often sport razor-sharp tusks. Hunting these wild hogs is as much a public service as it is a pastime. That makes looking for and picking up the right hunting rifle from a seller on GunBroker.com an absolute must.
By name, the PTR 91 is a high-quality clone of the legendary HK 91, but practically, this Precision Target Rifle is an ideal hog hunting tool. The PTR 91 has found many advocates on the GunBroker.com online marketplace and beyond for its sturdy construction, out-of-the-box suppressor threading, and prime optics real estate. Additionally, the 308 Winchester is also a good option for long-range targets and is reliable for a clean drop.
The Ruger Mini 14 has thoroughly established itself as a globally reliable phenomenon. That world-famous, tough-as-nails reliability also defines its cousin, the Ruger Mini 30. Being chambered for the heftier 762x39mm cartridge makes your next Ruger Mini 30 a best-in-class brush rifle, especially when you pick it up from a seller on GunBroker.com.
For the black rifle crowd, it is hard to beat a AR 15 chambered in 300 Blackout as a top-shelf hog-stopper. Plus, you can take it a couple of steps further and look for 300 Blackout ammo, aftermarket goodies from Rainier Arms, a suppressor, and anything else you need at GunBroker.com.
While the original Browning BAR would certainly be sufficient for taking on hogs, you might consider searching GunBroker.com for Browning’s semi-automatic incarnation of the BAR. Specifically, check GunBroker.com for the Browning BAR Mark II or Browning BAR Mark III hunting rifles chambered in 308 Winchester. There is even a Browning BAR ShortTrac Hog Stalker, specifically designed for stalking hogs.
One of the unquestionable stars when it comes to contemporary hog hunting rifle options is the short-barreled rifle (SBR) chambered in 6.8mm Remington SPC. It provides impressive performance with minimal recoil. Browse GunBroker.com for SBRs chambered in 6.8 Remington SPC, the appropriate Redfield scopes to pair with it, and everything else you need to stop those hogs from being a threat to you and your community.
