    Watching Moonshiners on TV and the shot through that bush was nice the problem becomes I thought it was a 30-30 but my brother thinks it was a 30-06 can anyone shine some light on my brother for me?

    Ps look at the lever action and how that bullet goes through the bush

    "Lever-action" makes my mind jump right to .30-30.

    the rifle is a 30-30.

    remember, that show is for entertainment purposes. almost all of it is scripted and behind the camera lens are lights, a director, and a whole lot of other stuff going on.

    i have a family friend who is a producer, for reality tv shows.

    If it's a rifle cartridge and isn't a boomer (I.E. .45-70, or the old school black powder rounds) it's .30-30.

    If it were .30-06, it'd have a box magazine, because of the pointed bullets.

    My thoughts were that it was .35 Rem. Recoil was a bit more than a .30/30

    Old, old marlin with most of the blueing warn off the steel work. 30-30, 32 win sp or 35 rem cartidge would be choice for older rifles. . Tell your brother if he finds a marlin lever in 30-06 he better buy it cause its a one off. hehe.

    It was certainly a 336, though a 30-30 or 35Rem or other I couldn;t tell. I do believe, however, that was one nice shot!

    .30/30 is enough to do just what you saw, trust me.

    wouldnt meat from a big old bore taste pretty nasty? I know from experience with domestic hogs that meat form a big old breeding bore has a pretty rank flavor! about all you can do with it is make sausage wit a LOT of seasoning. But maybe wild hogs are different we dont have any wild ones in my neck of the woods.
