    I wouldn't say over gunning it, no. There are more popular, smaller cartridges of course but plenty of pigs fall to .375 H&H too I'm sure!

    a lot of people use these on driven as long as you can coup with the kick and the price of ammo should be fine

    you can reload .375 h&h cheaper than buying premium bullets for .308

    No. I have used it for three years now. Less meat damage than a WSM or 270. Drops them every time.

    .375 h&h is not over gunning for wildboar (9.3x74r & my favourite the 9.3x62) are not far behind the .375 h&h and they are deemed as common for driven hunts. Just stay clear of safari grade heads and use something soft or you'll be having problems with ricochets!

    No, but choose bullet carefully...not only for ricochets but to prevent for long running of boars as well, after hit......
