I hog hunt with my SRH .44mag. I developed an accurate hard cast load for hog hunting. Haven't connected on a hog yet but I'm not too worried that it will drop em hard.

I have put a hog down with my .44 mag at 75 yards with a 300 grain bullet! It was no bang flop but that hog only went another 60 yards.

I have killed some with my Ruger Redhawk and the old Black Talon round. I worked great and really hammered them. I think they sell it now under the label Platinum Tip. My shots were all with open sights and under 75 yards.

I also use my .45 Colt Bisley, but my buddies all use .44 Super Blackhawks. They use whatever they can find. We catch with dogs, so all shot are close.
