Or would buckshot from my chain on at 25 yards work better.

All will be fine depending on the bullet. .270 would be at the bottom of the list, but all three will work with a Barnes etc. for sure.

My buddy got two at our place this year with one shot; 6.5 creedmoor 143 eld-x.

There are so many variables, I think you really just need to get lucky. That said, 30-06 will have the best chance of what you listed - mass over speed.

I've gotten plenty of "doubles" where I cycle the bolt fast enough to get a second pig - that's a helluva lot easier than trying to engineer a trick shot.

I’ve shot doubles with my 270 multiple times, but always smaller pigs. For two big boars, I would take the 30-06 with 180s.

I'd probably attempt that feat with buckshot. I accidentally got two with one bow shot last year lol... Sailed a Rage through a large sow, and stuck the arrow in the spine of a smaller hog on the opposite side of her. He went down squealing, the rest of the group took off running, I thought I had somehow missed her, but about 50 yards out she went down also.

I've done it several times with my -06 and a 150gr at that distance on shoats and mature pigs. Most I ever got was 7 piglets at once. They were about 20lbs each. That was at ground level at 60 yards. And they were in a group of about 30-35 piglets. No adults in the group. They had already been shot. Granted, there were parts inedible on the piglets.

This is the size I'm looking at, in the stand with the 7 mag. They usually show by 8 or 830.
Got pics of em running my deer off so they gotta go.

I shot these 2 with one shot from a 30/30 with Hornaday leverevolution ammo. Thru the neck in one and in the head on the other. Both dropped in their tracks. Both were fairly small tho. About 60 and 70 lbs.

You’re not going to kill doubles on big hogs reliably. Mediums yes but 200# plus boar I wouldn’t chance it. Now last week I doubled twice with #4 buck at 25 yrds. But the bead on the head neck area and it’s lights out. Best hog medicine I’ve used.

Watched my son do it with his 3006 and hornady 165s. Ear holed a 245 lbs boar and high shoulder on a 145 lbs boar. Neither one of them took another step. After the shot he said I think I hit two of them. We could only see the big boar on the ground. As we walked up to track the second boar we notice it was behind the first boar.

Iíve doubled twice on big hogs. One time was with a 30-06 & I was using a handload with the 168 gn A-Max.

Second one was with a .257 Roberts & a handload using the 117 gn SST.

I killed 2 last spring with my .270 at about 180 yards. Regular old lead tipped Winchester ammo. First one ran about 20 yards and the second dropped right there.

Sooo... I'd say a .270 would work.

I can’t count the times of done it with a 6.5CM but any of the calibers you listed would do it. Just use a copper monolithic bullet.

The pig in the picture you posted looks like a bar hog to me. No ears and a cut off tail. Theyíre usually thicker the boar hogs so Iíd plan accordingly. Oh, and meat good!

I've done it quite a few times. The easiest way I've found is to put down a line of corn perpendicular to your stand, then they will line up perfectly along it eating for a multikill shot. Take your time and wait for them to line up perfect one behind the other while close to each other. Earhole the first one and two pigs should fall down.

I'll add that I've done this mainly with a .270 or 6.8spc haven't been able to get it through 3 hogs yet though..... probably will need a bigger gun or smaller pigs
I've actually got two pigs with one shot with a bow before but they were piglets.

I would stick with the 7 mag if both pigs are large. I did it on a large sow and a medium sized boar at about 250 yards with a 150 gr. core lokt. The lead core of the bullet was stuck under the skin on the backside of the 2nd pig. Both were shot through the ribs.

Only done it once. Year before last. Barnes TSX 185gr .338WSM at 175 yds.
One hog was about 200 lb and the other about 140 lb both sows.

Any of your calibers will do with a Barnes TSX or TTSX

I love getting a two-fer

Done it several times.

Have not yet pulled off a 3-fer. Gonna have to be low to get that one.


Iíd use whichever rifle you like best. No wrong answers on this one. Just bring enough that it can carry energy through more than one carcass.

Done it several times with 270. Wait till they line up and shoot front one just behind the ear. Once I showed my wife how to do it, she trumped me and took down 3 100lb in one shot with 25-06. 3rd one ran maybe 20 yards, other 2 dropped where they stood. In 270 i shoot 130 grain rem core-lokts. And 25-06 117 grain sierra game kings.
