I'm curious as to what the opinion is from folk who have used various chambering/bullets on wild boar, in particular 6.5mm.
I have the chance to go to Germany for boar next January. This is not going to be something I do a lot of, maybe a total of two to four days a year so won't commit to a dedicated boar rifle as the money is better spent on another deer rifle.
I have a 300wsm which I know would be perfect but will likely be selling it as it isn't used currently and takes up space and resources. I have a 6.5x47 Lapua that is now be my main stalking rifle. The question is would that 6.5 with say a 140grn Partition or similar not be suitable for boar?
I have zero experience with boar but plenty on deer and with a good few different chamberings and bullets. If the boar are all shot pretty close I can't see how a 140grn bullet would be considered borderline yet what I read online suggests in general it isn't considered suitable.
