So I'll give some details . The pistol is a Super Blackhawk Hunter in .44 mag with a Weigand rail, UltraDot, and Hogue grips ...it's my 50 yards and in gun.

My load is 9.0 grains of Unique, powder coated Keith style SWC, Starline case, and CCI primer. This yields a muzzle velocity of 1075 fps. Nothing fancy, but accurate and easy shooting.

35 yard shot with a complete pass through. And yes, a slow flat nose does do damage beyond what you think it will. I'm gonna find those hogs and see what this load does to one them too!

Edit: and sorry for the photo quality and orientation. I tried to edit it to no avail.

I usually see what I least expect to see like the big gobbler 2 weeks ago. Surprises are fun and what makes hunting interesting and you keep going back.
Congrads!.
