Re: Big Bore Revolvers Can Be Very Effective
I totally agree that Big Bore Revolvers are impressive. below are two accounts of big bores in action.
A few months back My land Lord and I were out after a cougar that had been taking live stock in the area. I was packing my Tauras Raging Bull in 454 loaded with some 240 grain hollow points that I was testing. To make a long story short we came upon the cat. It was a 50-60 yard shot, down hill and running away. I caught him in the back, left of the spin, just rear of the rib cage. The hit took the cat down like I dropped a truck on it. The bullet came out the front of the chest just below the neck and left an exit wound nearly big enough to put my fist in. My favorate load is a 300 grain Horaday XTP Magnum Hollow point pushed by 30 grains of H110.
I was out with my hunting buddy Jon this dear season. He was packing his Custom Shop Smith in 500 S&W loaded with a 500 grain bullet. I watched as he took a buck at 25 or so yards. The bullet caught him just behind the left shoulder and spun it around almost 360 degrees. The bullet took the right leg off at the shoulder. It was real messy.
