(Spin-off) .44 Magnum Revolver and Hard-Cast Ammo...

This is a spin-off from another thread I started.

.44 Magnum, 7 1/2" or more barrel length combined with Hard-Cast, large meplat, 240 grain to 300 grain slugs moving at 1,200-1,400 FPS...

Would this combination be much good for close-range defense against large animals in north/northwestern regions?? I know there are many that would say it is NOT optimum. But, what if that is all you have. Would you stay home versus go out into the deep backwoods?

"My plea is that we stop seeking out the storm and enjoy more fully sunlight. I am suggesting that as we go through life we accentuate the positive. I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment and endorse virtue and effort." Gordon B. Hinckley
