.45 semi auto handgun for hunting

first off, i know they are not legal in PA. my son owns a Kimber custom carry in .45 acp

we are going to south carolina on a deer and boar hunt. i am going to use my AR and he wants to try his .45 on a hog.

i am looking for ammo recommendations for hunting. has anyone done this? what ammo did you use? i do not reload neither does he so it would have to be factory ammo.

he can hold a group the size of a deck of cards at 25 yards.

Thank You

The entire deck spread out or in one pile?

Joking aside, good luck and please if you do hit some with the Kimber, give us the post action report on what ammo was used and how it performed.
