    Default Hunting ammo for 44 mag handgun

    What ammo have people used for hunting with a 44 mag. I am going caribou hunting and if I get close enough would love to get one with my 44, I have a 7 1/2 BARREL REDHAWK WITH 4X SCOPE. What do you recommend, and anywhere to find some, I bought some of the 44 mag leverlution by horandy, has anyone used this. First time hunting with handgun

    thanks for your help.

    That should do fine on Caribou for sure within a hundred yards.I know a guy that did well on deer with the Winchester 250gr PTHP

    Default I used...

    A long time ago I shot 2 caribou with a 240 grain Remington jacketed soft nose. That and about any jacketed soft nose up to 300 grains should work for lung shots to 50 yards or so.
