Suggestions?

I'm looking for something pretty substantial. I considered the .470 Nitro, but I was wondering if yall knew of anything with a little more UMPH!

The target: Manbearpig

Something needs to be done.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

My first instinct is to say Alexander Arms .50 Beowulf - but ammunition is impossible to find.

What about a .700 Holland & Holland? Shoots a 1,000-grain bullet at 2,000 fps for 8,900 foot-pounds of muzzle energy.

Don't leave out the hand cannons. Perhaps a Contender/Encore pistol with 14" barrel in .445 supermag, .444 Schaffer, or 45/70. Or mabe a Serbu BFG - 50 carbine.

About the most economical big game type cartridge is .45/70. A 405 grain bullet will rip through a 1/4" piece of steel like it was paper at 100 yards.....Seen it first hand. Also as hard as that cartridge kicks I would hate to shoot anything larger.

375 H&H is a heavy hitter.

They even make a Browning A bolt chambered in it.

The 45/70 would be handy back up, in case the rifle rounds simply wound, but don't kill.

And that's after the .45ACP, in case it has no effect. Gotta be thorough.

.30-06 or .308?

Both are good for what you're hunting without being overkill.

If you need an extra gun, gimme a call. I don't mind putting hogs down..

It's a cereal threat.

I would go with a 100 terawatt assault rifle.

If you cannot find one then I would use the 45-70 with GARRETT'S 45-70 EXITER +P AMMO. Hit the beast with a dose of history and 500 grains of solid Cape Buffalo bustin power. Might have to deliver a finishing round just to be humane.
