Re: Answer me this

well it being a 44 mag load unless it says cowboy load on it ... yeah you could but in all good ethics it all would depend on the bullet... for a few $$ you can get a realy good hunting round but again it all depends on how it shoots that load too though but any thing marked 44 mag would take a pa deer at a decent range all so

Re: Answer me this

unless it is an FMJ you can hunt with it, I would still buy a hunting load

Most 44 mag loads are either soft point or hollow point. Either will work fine to hunt deer. It's rair to find 44's in FMJ's. If they shoot good out of the gun I would use them.

The ammo must be all lead or designed to expand on impact. FMJ bullets are not designed to expand and are not legal to hunt with.

Sec. 2322. Prohibited devices and methods.

(a) General rule. - Except as otherwise provided in this title or commission regulation, no person shall hunt, kill or take or attempt, aid, abet, assist or conspire to hunt, kill or take any big game, except wild turkey, with any of the following devices or methods:

(1) Any device other than a centerfire or muzzle-loading firearm or bow and arrow.

(2) Any automatic or semiautomatic firearm, except that any semiautomatic firearm modified to permit one shell in the chamber and no more than four shells in a magazine may be used by a person who suffered an amputation or lost the total use of one or both hands.

(3) Any firearm propelling more than one projectile per discharge.

(4) Any projectile which is not all lead or which is not designed to expand on contact.

(5) When any big game is swimming.

(6) By any other method or device which is not specifically authorized or permitted by this title or commission regulation.

(b) Penalty. - A violation of this section is a summary offense of the fifth degree.

Re: Answer me this

I once bought a quantity of 8mm Yugoslave FMJ stuff with the thought that I would cut off the tips, show lead, and use them for deer. However, my brother found that they have a steel core so that ended that.
