    Both calibers are great, but the .338 Win Mag will be much more expensive and may be a lot more power than you may need for most hogs. That isn't to say that too much power is bad, but only that you may be paying a lot more for what you don't use in terms of power.

    That .338 will reach out and touch them. LOL

    Do you plan on hunting other game with it?

    Well the 338 will definitely drop em. So will the 77/44 but within 150yds or so. Get what you can in this environment. I had the 458 socom on my short list and could not afford it. But then one day in Nov i just went ahead and did it. Dropped the dime and bought an upper on line and the last lower from the lgs. Put it all together and it is a blast. Is a shorter range gun, <200yds. But if you hit em it is an absolute freight train.

    Few loads ready to go


    Some I shot yesterday


    And a comparison with the .223


    But like I said, get what you can and learn how to shoot it. 338, 308, 7mm, any of them and others will work great for hogs.

    Funny how that works, isn't it? I have a Savage 116 - 7mm Remington Mag with a great scope, and I've got my heart set on 45/70 much like yours. lol You know how it goes. You think, "And then I'll be happy with that forever!"

    Sure I will.

    If it was me id get the ruger I think the .338 will be to heavy, loud, and overkill. But depending on your environment it may not be ive heard the .338 is a pain with out HEAVY ear protection on the other hand the .44 could shoot 200 yds easy and would have enough power and enough bullet options to drop a big hog.
