Everybody is talking about, but no one seems to be actually doing it. (That could apply to a lot of things I guess). Is anyone hunting with this caliber regularly? I picked up a Sig 220 10mm and am debating on whether to keep it. I always seem to gravitate towards my 44s. Anyone?
I helped a friend set up a Glock 40 to hunt deer with this year, but he didn't get any shots so there's no field report. Pick the right bullet/load and it should work well. His gun liked the Buffalo Barnes 155gn Barnes bullet at 1550fps with a 6.5" barrel.
I bought the Remington long slide hunter, I shoot it with open sights, awesome accuracy out to 100 yards, using the Hornady 200 grain XTP, and the Nosler bullet , both with 200 grain bullets and 9 grains of Blue Dot.

I have killed a small deer with my G40 with HPR 180gr XTPs. I think they are around 1200fps (no chrono, yet) Have to pick your shots, the one I killed was 40 yards and angling hard away. Good penetration with the bullets stopping under the far shoulder.
