what is a good caliber for javelinas?
Well, considering they're 40-60 lbs and you can generally get to within 50 yds or less (sometimes you can walk right up on them), most any centerfire rifle or pistol will work. I would recommend .243 or better. This spring I'm using a .50 muzzleloader shooting patch and ball during the rifle season. Archery is on the agenda too (I have two tags - one rifle, one archery).
