    Being from Australia, there are only a few rifles to choose from.

    The Aussi`s have quite a few choices still on firearms, no auto, semi auto or pumps but that is about it. M70s, M700s, Mausers, CZ, ect are all popular there. They use all the cartridges we do here, and some of the European rds as well from what I`ve read. Hunting is a big business down under and ranchers do a lot of culling, maybe more then we do here in the states. Pigs, deer, rabbit and more are imported pests that are competing with the native animals for food and don`t have natural enemies. They have to be controled one way or another.

    That thing would be about 9 feet long.

    No measurement given (and that's VERY odd), but a weight of around 500 pounds is stated. I think a hog can get that heavy but one that big would weigh more than 500 pounds. A 400 bear I once saw was barely 5 feet long.

    I don't believe the photo.

    According to published reports by several agencies, the photo has been deemed to be real.

    The way the photo is shot makes the hog look way bigger than it actually is. The man in the photo is leaning on the passenger side window, and the hog is hung from a metal bar mounted to the bed of the truck, closer to the camera. The metal bar is swung so the hog is hanging off the side of the bed, closer to the camera than the truck, resulting in another faulty visual cue.

    The article on PerthNow says the 'giant pig' weight 220kg, putting him over 440 lbs.

    As Ol` Joe says, you'd be surprised. :scrutiny:

    Some firearms are not available, but on the other hand the Australians have access to some European makes and models that are rarely if ever available in North America. E.g., Granite Arms imports Voere, Unique Alpine and Krico. Aussies can also buy Sako's 85 'Bavarian' and the Enfields made by their indigenous Australian International Arms: try getting either one of those in the USA.
