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 have a Glock 10 long slide with a vortex red dot on it and love it. Killed a few deer and a hog with it so far. Great caliber. Great gun. All quick kills. Using Underwood 200 grain JHP.

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 carry an EAA Witness as a sidearm when hunting. Have not been presented a chance to use it on a deer yet

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.

Think I will just force myself to try it. I always grab the 44 because it's tried and true, but I think I will give the Sig a chance this season. Should be a cull Sika buck in it's near future.
