I guess it's just my nature but I tend to like to stack the odds in my favor. Sometimes animals die easy, sometimes they take a whole lot of killing. Trouble is you don't know which type of animal it is until after you've taken the shot.

Which is why I've come to the conclusion one should carry the largest gun they can shoot well, and place the shots accordingly.

If all I had on me was a .327 and I had the right opportunity to take a deer would I? Absolutely! Would I choose a .327 with the intent to go out and hunt deer? Absolutely not.


Very well put.

I shot this meat hog with the 100 grain American Eagle. The shot was from about 15 yards, and she died within seconds, after a frantic 20 yard run.


A single bullet punched through both lungs and exited. The effect was immediate and the shot was decisive. She weighed approximately 225 lbs. I was pleasantly surprised that the bullet exited. I thought an animal of this size would challenge the .327.



The JSP showed a minimum of expansion, but still caused adequate damage.



There is a cartridge case next to the wound for size comparison. Note the jelly from the chest cavity,she really pumped lung blood from both entry and exit wounds.

I shot my first exotic ram with the 100 grain American Eagle factory load. The shot was about 25 yards. The ram didn't immediately show the effects of the bullet, but rather ran 15 yards, stopped, wobbled, and then fell into a death flop. He died within seconds of the shot.



Only a single bullet was needed for this approximately 140 lb animal. The shot was broadside, through both lungs, and the bullet exited. The exit surprised and amazed me, as sheep wool is known to slow bullets and hamper penetration.



The rams lungs showed signs of more expansion from the JSP.

Wish I hadn't read this thread. Didn't know I needed a gun in this caliber until I did. Would make an interesting fall turkey round.
