        My preference is the .44 mag. Bullet diameter, weight and penetration.

          I've been pistol hunting deer in Illinois since it opened several years ago. I use a smith and wesson .44 magnum. It does a fantastic job. A buddy of mine used to use a .357 and traded it for a .44mag. He was not happy with the results. He is ex-cia and is proficient with a pistol so I take him at his word.

            I would be hard pressed to vote for anything other than the 44 magnum for hunting.

                  Honestly I have a ruger super blackhawk in a 44 and cant hit the broad side of a barn with it past 20 yards! I dont know if I am flinching or if its just to bad ass for me but my old man has a 357 that i find is more to my liking.

                    I'd go with the 44mag. I can hit a gallon milk jug at 100 yards with mine. I believe you get better penetration at longer ranges with sufficient energy which begins to fall off with all the others mentioned.

                                Dream on boys. We've all seen an actual cold-blooded murder take place on TV, and the kneeling cop will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law....

                                Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
