Dick, that is why I bowhunt. And while I always try to get as close as possible to shoot any game animal. When I hunt with revolvers. I treat it like a bowhunt.
I have built several pistols for taking game at long range. What range is that? I believe that is in the eye of the shooter. I have no plans to shoot past 350-400 yards on my upcoming trip to Africa. Having said that. Everything would have to be perfect for me to shoot that distance. I practice a lot out to 500 and have become comfortable with several guns at that distance.
To date my furthest Deer is 276 yards ( 6.5 x .284 XP-100) and a big pig at 269 yards ( 7 Saum HS Precision )

I love long distance shooting at game with rifles, but pretty only hunt with revolvers. Furthest on deer was 168 yards off hand with a 10? 454 with fa fiber optics and millet silhouette sights. Used federal barnes xbp 250 rounds. I like to het close but hint with my kiddos and am usually batting cleanup and take what i can get at the end of the hunt usually.
