My Dad and Uncle have taken a few with 12ga 2 3/4" win. XXX with no problems. I have only ever taken one with a 45-70 gov.
but both of them still hunt them with the old 12ga's. I read some where that a 12ga deer slug could drop a rhino at 75 yrds with one shot to the vitals not sure I would test this or not but you can if you wish.
