    Caliber for shooting Boar

    Is there a minimum calibre in the UK which you must use for the shooting Boar, there are wild boar on the land i have shooting access to and have been asked to control them. I have a .270 at the moment is this sufficent?

    There is no Legal statute laws regarding calibres for Boar (unlike Deer) but the guidelines suggest 270 should be the minimum used based on Knockdown power and humane despatch.
    The main thing tho is, regardless of calibre, shot placement is very important.
