I just decided that I am going to use my .44 to hunt with off of my bait stand this year. This will be the first time and the first game that I have shot with a pistol.
I will not have time to do any reloading this spring so I want to use a good quality factory round. I have not looked into this before so figured I would start here.
For those of you that hunt with this or simular calibers, what round would you use? I want superior reliability so will spend the extra money for good ammunition. Obviously penetration and turning lungs to jelly is my goal.
The shot will be 5-20 yards and I would prefer to shoot a broadside double lung shot. The pistol is a S&W 629, 6.5" barrel and will have a crimson trace laser, although I am very confident in my iron sites shooting as well.
I plan to buy the rounds in Fairbanks and will spend some time at the range to get everything in line so the first shot counts.
Thank you for all.
I will also search through this forum for info as this is actually the first time I have logged into this particular one.
