44 mag for deer hunting. So long as its HP and any Brand that targets well from your rifle is the way to go. Shot a deer once with a Soft Point 44. Never do that again. Spent quite awhile looking for him after dark, gave up and found him the next morning. In and out like a B/Powder ball the wound was after pulling its hide off. Weight type bullet>200 or 240 both good. Just keep in mind Hollow Point as a necessity to knock that "Speed Beef down to the Ground."
Heartland of gun country. Fishing too.
