Re: 357 Mag Pistol Deer Hunting
"I am old enough to know that what " I want" and what I get are 2 different things. That is why I don't have a 44 magnum.
My "want' for a "humane kill" is a worthy goal; one which I will continue to "want" whether I get it or not."
I'm not trying to be an ass. I just know from killing a lot of deer that a 357 is not great for putting them down hard. I've only killed a few with handguns (9mm 40 ,45 and 357) but was never impressed with the results. Also seen deer go 50 yards hit with a rifle and their heart hanging out the exit hole with part of it missing. Shoot enough deer you will see them run, even on good text book lethal shots. Short of a high shoulder or CNS shot.
It is a worthy goal to want humane kills and I strive for them. At times I've gone a dozen straight DRT. All I am saying is mid size handguns (357) dont =DRT most of the time.
