Killed several deer with my 4 5/8 .45 blackhawk. 255gr. SWC on top of H110 (don't remember how much) It's always in a crassdraw holster when I'm deer hunting. It's fun killing things at close range with a pistol and good to have a back-up gun in case your rifle decides it's retired. I HAD to use it one day. I started climbing down out of my ladder stand, rifle slung on right shoulder, diet cokes under my left arm. A coyote is standing 5ft. away on my right side and the pistol was the only option. nailed him.
