I'm sorry I thought you were intending to be a smart ass with the brain shot comment.. With when your hunt is I'd say you will have no problem getting in close enough for a head or neck shot. In this case I'd assume that either of the rounds would do just fine. My personal favorite is the base of the head, neck shot. Seems to work very well. I like head shot also but only if there looking at me or away from me. I've seen way to many animals run off with their jaws blown off due to not holding just right. Anyways... I'd say you'll be fine with either of the rifles. But I'm with you on the pistol part. blackhawk I'd assume it to be a 44mag? That'd be fun!
Hahaha looking at this list of cartridges it appears it hasn't been updated in a long while!!
