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

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.
