45 ACP for small game?
I have a Kimber 1911 that I love to shoot and was wondering if it is legal, moral, possible to hunt small game with? Anyone have any ideas, opinions, or experience with this? Thanks, schmidty
I've used the 45 ACP lots for snowshoe hare, but usually from a revolver rather than an auto. Lots easier to recover the brass! Both my revolvers deliver exceptional accuracy with a cast semiwadcutter (suitable for autos, too) over a moderate load of 700X or bullseye. Don't know about an auto load, but I'm betting if you launch a SWC at around 700 fps it's going to be accurate and do a nice job head shooting small game.
