You should find a bullet with about 1400 FPS for deer and bear.That bullet is barely coming out of the barrel.

taht level of performance is slightly better than a 44 special load. the 44 special is in my opinion a great self defense caliber but not a 50 yard deer getter. elmer kieth used heavily handloaded(probably borderline safe)44 special loads to do his handgun hunting. those loads were the forerunners to the 44 magnum. 240 grain bullets at 1400/1500 fps. i took a buck a few years ago with handloaded cast 240 grain bullets at 1500 fps.he never took a step.
