I am looking for a good deer load for this pistol.

I have tried 50 gr. of 2F but it seems too light. Should I use 3F? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Yes You can use 3F It might be better or You may not be able to tell a difference.But you don't have to stay with 2F. I shoot 3F in my 54 cal Rifles with no problems and very good accuracy.I also think you get better inition with 3F. also I would not hesitate to shoot up to 75 grains of powder.work up slowly from 50 grains. If your gun is shooting accurately at 50 watch as you move up and if accuracy goes out the window you will know when to stop and back back down a little till you are happy with the results.
