It's time to stop then while you are ahead! Your combo can and will kill deer. As stated the 2x scope will make a world of difference. BUT as for clean DRT kills you are asking an awful lot of a handgun cartridge at 150 yard. And I can say with confidence you will have deer that run.
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.
