Most guns have a sweet high spot and a sweet low spot in powder charges.
I have 2 small frame TC Senecas in 45 cal.One is set up with maxis and the other RBs.Both get a charge of 50grs.Killed deer with both with never finding a RB or maxi in the deer.Pass thru with lung shots.I also have a 58 cal that likes a high end load of 120grs.Killed deer with it and they were no more dead when shot with the 45's. Know guys on another form that kill deer with .32 cal and another that years back used a 36 cal on elk.it's MORE the person behind the gun than the caliber or powder charge.A bad hit is still a bad hit regardless of how big that bullet/RB and powder charge is.It's that 1st shot out of a clean bore that matters.
NOTHING lives with a hole in the heart or lungs no matter what caliber or projectile used!
