    I use my Remington 270 simi auto deer rifle

    It would depend on the terrain..
    I would think a .270 would be a lot up close, but for long shots it would be good.
    If shots are shorter, I would think a 30-30 would suffice..

    IMO..

    But I will be interested in other peoples opinions..

    If I may, I would like to redirect you to a site with some great information regarding boars. Not my site, but I like to use it for reference for friends or others who may be interested in hunting hogs...

    My Winchester Model 70 in .270 would be nice. But I still think the AR would be fun.

    I'm hoping to go hog hunting soon with a co-worker and plan on using my Savage bolt action 30-30.

    Marlin 1895 lever action in 45/70 for distance. Thompson/Contender or Encore 30.30 medium range. 45 LC single action, or .44 s&w revolver for up close.
    Some folks use a spear.
    .22 LR back of the head will work also.
