    Do you hunt with that? Or just shoot? Always thought it would be a good challenge for deer hunting.

    Traegers are no fun,they don't blow up like propane grills even with APIT's 400 or 1200 yds ...

    Yes, tracking an injured deer for several hours after shooting it definitely adds to the challenge.

    Yes. That is exactly the challenge I meant. Why wouldn't everyone want that experience?

    You don't have a set up like that if you can't shoot it . Nice rig .

    My remark was supposed to be sarcasm. I really think hunting with a handgun would be a blast.

    I hand load hard cast bullets I make myself... 350 grain cast from lead shot... Antimony and lead.. they are fairly hard.. at a muzzle velocity of 1080 ft/sec.. I know it's slow... about like a 12 gauge... all the energy is absorbed by the animal in about 8-12" of penetration.. 900 ft pounds of energy is a bit.. over 100 yds is not something I would shoot at... It's a brush gun...
    Yes it's a super red hawk, 44 magnum, 9.5" barrel... with a 1.25 x 4 Tasco scope.. Millet scope mounts..
