My dad loves his T/C Encore (he has since converted it to a rifle). Great weapon, as accurate as any rifle,but... where's the handgun challenge? I shoot a Super Blackhawk when deer hunting for the challenge of range and sight limitation of a 10" sight radius. I don't see a scoped "short rifle" as being any different than a long rifle in the challenge department. In other words, they've got more in common with a rifle than a handgun.
As far as question 2, .243 might be a little light for hogs, though probably adequate for deer. I would suggest 7mm-08 though the 6.5-08 (260 Rem) is a great cartridge too.
Good hunting.
