Larger calibers will push many bone fragments into the hogs shoulders and chest areas, making a mess of your carcass.
The only time to use larger than a 22 LR is if you are hunting wild, feral hogs. In which case you want to drop them fast because a wounded hog is quite dangerous.
Thanks, I was asking those calibers because it is what I can borrow from my family.
You should be able to find one in a pawn shop for little money, even a single shot type will work just fine.
I've seen some in pawn shops for under 50 dollars that would be great hog harvesting rifles.
