RE: I'm told it's fairly difficult

I be real careful hunting PIG with this guy.
The 7.7mm (roughly 30 cal) is fairly low speed and depending on bullet weight, maybe not enough delivered energy for a BIG or MEAN pig.

Exterior ballistics similar to a .308 can be achieved thru careful handloading.

Bullet weights from 125 grain UP are available for handloading.

Deer? Forever. I'd give max hunting range at in the 200 yard area. After that, depending on ballistics, you might have lost too much energy.

Bear? I don't think so. Especially if you go up North for Griz or to Alaska for a big Brown.

For 48 state pig? Something with a real whallop is indicated. 7mm mag? 338 Winchester?
Maybe even one of the Weatherby Magnums ($$$$)

Too much is never enough
