4" bbl for deer hunting?
 
I realize it all boils down to your ability to make shot placement, but I wondered if a 4" barrel is adequate for deer hunting?

Absolutely adequate. Nine deer since I've been hunting with my S&W 329PD 44 Magnum. That's a Leupold Delta Point on top.

Don't know... but I do know I wouldn't want it pointed at me. :wink2:

2-3" @ 50yd off the bench. My short range thicket gun. Shooting my own cast Lyman 250gr Devastator RNHP at 1000fps. Longest shot 65yds, lasered. Closest had to ckeck for powder burns. All complete pass throughs. All one shot. For me there's nothing better than handgun hunting.

My 4' barrel would be a little overkill for deer. There is nothing in the reg's for cannons but I will be lobbying to get them added.

That gun has the worst recoil that I have ever experienced in a handgun(and yes I've shot most all of the big ones). Credit to you pulling the trigger at least nine times :grin2:
