Redhawks got a lot of experience, his word is good for me. I have a few revolvers in 44 that I hunt with and they need new sights to shoot heavy, 300gr, bullets accurately. So, I use 240gr xtps. I use them on hogs and they do flatten them like lightning.....but...they didn't exit! I'd shoot heavy if you can find a good load.
BTW...I've had 2 girls getting licences in that last 5 years...can you say grey hair.
