I watched a long video that starred the president of COLD STEEL knife company. I've forgotten his name. Anyways, this hunter hammered dozens of wild water buffalo and hogs in Australia with his 44 MAG revolver. By hammered I mean to say that he toppled them as if struck by Thor's hammer. Ammo featured Hornady's 300 gr XTP bullet. Very impressive results from shoulder and lung shots at reasonable hunting ranges.
I toppled many coastal blacktails with my Marlin 44 MAG when I was stationed at Travis AF Base, Calif. None got away.
