deer hunting with a pistol ?
Id am no expert but one clean rifle shot is more humaine
than a maybe kill with a 44MAG
Is a 44 or 45 cal bullet in the vitals ever a maybe? 44's and 45's, even at pistol velocities will exit.
In my book, that is much better than a 243 Win which might explode. Still, I think a 243 Win is a good deer caliber with good bullets.
Most rifles are generally overkill x 5, especially those people in deer camp with a 300 Win mag because they might shoot 250 or 300 yards. I mean, a good shot will kill. A bad shot with a 50, is still a bad shot.
