I was using my Ruger Super Blackhawk Mag-na-port Stalker and my son was using his Ruger Bisley Flattop.

What a fantastic morning for sure!

I have to think that a father son double with sixguns is a relatively rare occurance. CONGRATULATIONS.

Congrats!.
I shoot the same load for deer and bigger. the 240 XTP i found to be a little hard for whitetails. short runs, good blood trails but not the hammer effect it has on thicker skinned and larger critters. I started opening the hollow point cavity with a 1/8" drill to a depth of 0.200" on a drill press. I lose 9 grains which is fine. no change in POI. Essentially it is a tad wider hole but twice as deep. Expansion is amazing and it dumps a lot more energy on the way through the deer. All but one of more than 20 deer had exits. 21 shots. Recovered one which was a follow up shot on a stunned standing dead deer at 85 yards quartering away. found on opposite side under skin after breaking shoulder blade.
But the behind the leg broadside shots that impress me most as the deer will almost always drop at the shot. Not one has run since that. out to 111 yards. 44 mag 7.5" S&W stealth hunter with a red dot.
I am such a bullet nerd...
