Dont know, but the gun they used to kill the croc that the 60 year old woman jumped on was a glock and looked like a 34 (9mm right?).

Thats right! A Glock didnt blow up!

The guy used a few rounds on the croc

Don't know about crocs, but a 5.56 XM193 will flat do a number on a gator from a 16in. barreled AUG!

If I were hunting BIG croc, like the Nile crocodile, I'd want to use a 308.

Well, for alligators down here I believe the trapper has to use a .45 by law.
But, back when I used to swim out and catch 'em by the tail I'd use my 9mm Glock to finish 'em off because a Glock will shoot underwater, you know.

.338 Lapua, just stick the barrel in it's mouth!

You'd want a whole heck of a lot more than that, my friend.

Whats the best round for a croc?



That would depend on what the croc is carrying.

20mm would do nicely, thank you...

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with this thread.



<------------------------------------------

Apparently Rudyard Kipling had an opinion.

From his short story "The Undertakers"....

A shiny barrel glittered for a minute in the moonlight on the
girders. The Mugger [crocodile] was lying on the sand-bar as still as his
own shadow, his fore-feet spread out a little, his head dropped
between them, snoring like a--mugger.

A voice on the bridge whispered: "It's an odd shot--straight
down almost--but as safe as houses. Better try behind the neck.
Golly! what a brute! The villagers will be wild if he's shot,
though. He's the deota (godling) of these parts."

"Don't care a rap," another voice answered; "he took about
fifteen of my best coolies while the bridge was building,
and it's time he was put a stop to. I've been after him in
a boat for weeks. Stand by with the Martini as soon as I've
given him both barrels of this."

"Mind the kick, then. A double four-bore's no joke."

"That's for him to decide. Here goes!"

There was a roar like the sound of a small cannon (the biggest
sort of elephant-rifle is not very different from some
artillery), and a double streak of flame, followed by the
stinging crack of a Martini, whose long bullet makes nothing of
a crocodile's plates. But the explosive bullets did the work.
One of them struck just behind the Mugger's neck, a hand's-
breadth to the left of thle backbone, while the other burst
a little lower down, at the beginning of the tail. In ninety-
nine cases out of a hundred a mortally-wounded crocodile can
scramble to deep water and get away; but the Mugger of Mugger-
Ghaut was literally broken into three pieces. He hardly moved
his head before the life went out of him, and he lay as flat
as the Jackal.


I'm guessing a "double four-bore" would be a 4-gauge double-
barreled shotgun.

It's a four bore RIFLE! Frigging huge. John Ross's main character in UC uses one in Africa, the book goes into detail about them.....

I'd want a Mk19 40mm MG.

I'm guessing a "double four-bore" would be a 4-gauge double-
barreled shotgun
.



dude, it's not a shotgun, its a double rifle!!!

typically has a bullet diameter between .935 to .955 weighing about 1850 grains and a case length of around four inches!!!

its a freakin CANNON!!!

All ya gotta do is roll em over and give em a good rub on the belly - puts them right to sleep.

Then you blow their brains out with a 44 magnum, obviously.

Brisk322, is that gator in your avatar biting a pillow?

Sounds like a good way to do the rubbing from inside the croc.

Mine is hiding behind the pillow. Clearly I must adjust the gif - or convice the staff to increase the allowable dimensions of avatars.

www.parapluesch.de explains it all.

I had great success using a .45ACP when I went gator hunting last year. At about 10 yards, that Gucci bag with feet took one to the brainstem and was down for the count.

Use the harpoon, bring it up next to the boat and sever the spinal cord at the base of the skull with a long knife.

Or - nuke 'em from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
