Default can a .410 slug put down a pig???

Want to try this gun out and put some meat on the table. Could a .410 slug take a pig down in a clean ,semi quick kill ??? If so what would be max range??? Thanks all , hope you had a good Easter

paka,yes a Hog can be killed with the .410, but I would stay under 50yds with the 2.5" Rem or Win Slugs. I would also stay under 75yds with 3" Fed and Brenneke slugs. These recommendations work great on deer....On Hogs your shots will have to be more precise....I favor the Winchester 9410 with the 24" barrel for hunting...

Thanks Reb ,
Really am glad I can use this on a hunt. My Dad and Grampa will be smilling greatly up in heaven upon me and my son. Wonder if Jesus will give them a funny look as they watch over our hunt

You might want to check with your state Fish and Game Department. I know that in California the regulations for hunting hogs with a shotgun specify a minimum of 16 guage.

You have a bow, why would you want to use a shot gun?
