Hunting with a Ruger 77/44
Last week I acquired a Ruger 77/44. I’ve never been too hot on pistol caliber rifles, but in a weak moment I capitulated. Being short, stainless and plastic I thought it might be a good truck gun for hogs. Shot it and it seemed accurate enough, but I have questions from anyone who has hunted with one.
What game have you used it on?..... How well did it work, or didn’t?....... What ranges did you make kills with it?......... Any real short (pun intended) comings?....... Have I just got a long barreled pistol?....... Any other info?.......
I plan on using max loads of 296/H110 behind a 240 JSP on the porkers around here, maybe even a deer or two, or something else that needs killing.
