    Has anyone had any experience using a .45 colt revolver with six inch barrel on deer size game. I realize it would need to be fairly close.

    Yes you would unless you are hunting from a stand where you can get deer fairly close.

      I use a 45ACP 230 grain cast out to 50 yards with no problem.

        you don't have to be as close as you think, you just have to change your shooting style. practice shooting from a seated position using your knees as braces, or at the very least use sticks or a tree. I shot my 454 into a 5 gallon bucket offhand at about 75 yards pretty regularly. It just takes practice, and a longer barrel would help. I'd say 50-75 yards would be no problem. Pick a bullet stay with it and practice practice practice.

                I got my "stampede string" pulled up tight. I'm reminded back when Obummer was in the WH and diesel went to $4+/gallon!
