FWIW my 1973-vintage Ruger Blackhawk 4-5/8" in .45 LC is my choice. Easy to carry and use, plenty of power for deer up to 50 yards (my field accuracy limit with open sights). I have used many different loads in it for deer, both cast and jacketed. Favorite bullets are the 250 XTP and 250 Lee RFN. Either one over 15 grains of BlueDot does the trick.

Whitetail handgun. .45 colt 5.5" Blackhawk. BUT, I have a .44 special 5.5" Blackhawk that is deadly on deer.

Tough call to pick just one.
My S&W 629 is the best offhand, point and shoot gun I own. I also like my Redhawk in 44 magnum, with or without a scope. That being said I am hunting this season with a scoped, X frame 460 S&W.

My favorite revolver is a Ruger Redhawk chambered in 429 GNR with a 2 x 6 Bushnell scope. The 429 is a 454 Casull necked down to 44 caliber. It shoots Hornady 240 XTP's at 1625 fps. and 250 grain LBT's at 1710 fps.

This will be my go to Revolver until I get a few down. Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter 44 Mag with Stalker Conversion. Leupold 4x pistol scope. Got this a few months back from Mark Hampton in one of his weak moments.
I think he wanted another gun.
I'm shooting my handloads of Hornady 240grn XTP's and H110. This target is from 50 yards. I'm going out this weekend to stretch out to 100 and see what it does.

Thats a heck of a group from your SBH Hunter. I shott the 240 XTP's and H-110 in my 12" Encore. Sighted in at 50 yards, they drop 2 inches at 100.
