octagon said:Yes. I have taken a few deer with my H&R Handi rifle in .44 mag. It is a carbine with an 18 1/2 inch barrel. Very accurate with Winchester USA Deer/Bear 240 grain soft points. It blows right thru deer and doesn`t mess up the meat. These rounds are a best buy in my opinion. The only thing is they are a little dirty, but never a problem. They also come 50 to a box.
