A 175 grain Silver Tip hollow point going 1600 FPS from the barrel of my 6.5 inch Black Hawk has killed more than a few hogs. All DRT. Penetration was through, and through. The wound channel was huge.

I like the .41 Mag. It will do for me anything the .44 Mag will with a flatter trajectory, and with less recoil. I cast for mine, and hand load. Speer makes a great jacketed hollow point, and Remington makes a great jacketed soft point of 210 grains that will kill any animal south of the Mason Dixon line, and most north of it providing the shooter does their part.

If you do not reload, and have no plans to then go with the .44 Mag. Ammo while expensive can be purchased at any sporting goods store, or Walmart.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
