I put this question in general discusion then in wild boar. Didn't get much back, so I thought I'd try here:-
I have the chance to shoot boar in a wooded mountainous area, so ranges will be sub 100m mostly less than 50m. My options are to buy a cheap iron sight double rifle, perhaps a Baikal. Alternatively I could use a Brenneke type slug in a shotgun.
I'm looking for some advice from someone who has used rifled slugs in a smooth barrel. What level of accuracy can I expect, and over what range? Is there a recoil issue?
Regarding the Double rifle, has anyone here used or owned a Baikal double rifle? Opinions on accuracy and reliability of the regulating system, would be most helpful.
I own a 7x64 Sauer 202, but I want a very cheap alternative as it will most likely end up being dropped, sat on, or used to beat a path, before I actually shoot with it.
I look forward to reading your words of wisdom.
