Best ammo for whitetail deer I've ever shot!
Review by 44 Sniper Rifle. (Posted on 11/11/12)
Everything I read about using a 44 mag as a deer rifle ALWAYS refer to the 240 or 300 grain ammo. I shot a 44 mag. pistol for deer for years and took several with them. I bought 2 of the handi-rifles for me and my son and I set the scope with my 180 grain pistol cartridges since they worked so well on whitetail. I set the sights 2 inches high at 50 yds. and only have a 4 inch drop @ 200 yds. I have taken several deer at 200-225 yds. and killed a wild hog 2 years ago at 324 yds., that's right 324 yds (who'da thunk it out of a 44 mag)., and I had the crosshairs on the top of the hogs shoulder and hit him right in the base of the neck! I have shot every caliber under the sun at whitetails and have never had a setup that worked as well as the 180 grain Hornady in the H&R 44 mag. Everyone thinks they are short range weapons, but I have found that with the right gun and ammo, it's amazing what can happen. After the first 23 shots by me and my son, we had 21 dead whitetails (none went over 60 yds. from where they were shot), one dead tree (mine--running deer) and one miss (son missed a running deer). I'll stand shoulder to shoulder with anyone and any caliber up to 200 yds. and take their money. This ammo in my Handi-Rifle is that accurate.
