.45 acp will kill any deer that walks within reasonable range...I use hard cast 200 grain swcs in my .45 super and it kills em just as well as my pumped up .45 LC loads in a revolver.

cherokeetracker is right on. The neck shot is the spot on a big hog with a pistol. I like the old WW 230 gr. JHP in the .45 ACP. No need for anything fancy.

Sorry, I had to resurrect one of the posts regarding hunting with the 45 acp, due to what I found yesterday.

I was shooting Goldiloks, my Blackhawk 45 Convertible, with the 45 acp cylinder at 50 yards and hitting the steel gong with it. I was using plain 230gr. FMJ ball ammo, and even with the loss in velocity due to the B/C gap, it was still hitting the gong with enough force to knock it off the rack and throw it back a couple feet.

When I was pulling targets, I found these laying in front of the rack.



You can see the original base size on the bottom of the middle bullet.

This has me wondering, if they were used on shoulder bone, could they mushroom to this degree?

These would leave quite a wound channel, I believe.

I do not think they would expand at all in a deer..unless it has swallowed a steel gong...

Bullets do not act the same on bone as they do steel. THE fmj would likely pencil on thru. With no cutting edges not much damage .Why use a sub par bullet that will only wound when we have proven bullets that work and work well.
