Seems like a rhetorical question to me, as there's nothing I know of short of an elephant or rhino that either one of these won't shoot clean through with the right load. I'm of the opinion that unless you plan on actually going out and purposefully hunting something like a grizzly, they are more than anyone needs. For defense in the wild, it's more important that you hit what your aiming at without a lot of time to concentrate on how much the recoil is going to hurt. I think the practical limit for this is a .44mag. .45LC is about as good with handloads, but the .44 still beats it in penetration becasue unless you use some really heavy bullets, the .44 has a higher sectional density. I think the .44 is still King for all practical purposes.
