What’s the best shot size for hunting wild boar ?
I’m going to Tunisia and you can’t use a rifle. The boar there are bigger than the European ones

I have hunted in Montana, South Dakota, Minnesota, Texas and Germany. A shot gun is good for birds but if you are hunting anything else, use a rifle. I have found the 270 pretty much the best all around rifle for North America and Germany.

SG or spherical ball here is the best bet. Keep the small stuff for those tiny feral pigs

I am a decent shot and have won many awards for superior shooting
and I would recommend #12 shot. It makes a bigger shot pattern.

Slugs. They don't make hog shot and buck shot is not all that effective for deer.

Honestly --- buckshot isn't even recommended for hunting whitetail deer, even if it is legal. The reason for this is that it only proves to be lethal at very short ranges -- 25 to 30 yards. Generally buckshot is only used for defensive purposes against such animals as feral hogs and black bears -- as they are going to be tougher to kill than a deer.
A slug is a far better choice. The shotgun should be at least 20 gauge and preferably outfitted with a barrel either designed for sabot slugs or Foster slugs. But it is important to use only those slugs for which the barrel was designed. Barrels that will shoot sabot slugs have rifled bores.

Buckshot or a slug if your barrel is rifled.

Best is subjective. I use number four Buck 3-in Magnum in 12 gauge. For someone who was supposed to be a well-heeled world traveler and expert Hunter you sure do ask some basic questions. I'm beginning to think you are a fraud, liar, charlatan, provocateur, and a troll.
