    .41 will sure do the job. Before I narrowed down to .357 and .44s only for simplicity, I had three different .41s, two Rugers and a S&W. Only shot one deer with .41, but it performed admirably. Good work on this one! Love me some sixgun deer hunting.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. It wasn't a tough shot except that he was in a hurry to be somewhere else - if he hadn't stopped to lick that branch over the mock scrape I'd made, it would have been a lot tougher. He was probably only about 25...

    From the reading I've done, the primary thought behind the development of the .357 gun/cartridge was as a hunting arm, secondarily (but probably later overshadowing the former) as a law enforcement weapon. Well, the original gun and cartridge can...

    They were both big-bodied deer, especially the one Colt killed. We didn't have access to a scale but I'd guess he was pushing 200# live weight; big for our part of the country.

    Larry, my bullets are mostly wheelweight metal with a little pure lead added to soften them a bit; idea being I want my hunting bullets to expand, if possible. I've shot several deer with this bullet, but this is the first one I've recovered. It hit...

    Tex, I'm 59 years old and have killed multiple deer every year since I was 15 - but I still get excited every time. Especially with a more "challenging" weapon choice like handgun, muzzleloader (traditional, not scoped/inline) or bow (again,...

    Weather forecast here for opening day of firearms season was dismal - strong winds, warm temps, and thunderstorms brewing by afternoon. Decided to go this morning anyway, I was afraid the season wouldn't open if I wasn't out there. About 8 am this...
