    How many of you guys handgun hunt? What type of handgun? What load do you use?

    I just picked up a .44 mag with a 6 1/2"barrel and am waiting on my reloading supplies for it to arrive, then the fun will begin. I can't wait to put some lil piggies down with this caliber.

    I hunt with a 357 Taurus tracker with a 6.5 in ported barrel and a 2x scope. I have used cor-bon 200grn. hard cast (for pass thru), and Hornandy Tap (for knockdown power)

    Also a 44 mag Super Blackhawk I used 230 grain silvertips.

    I have a rather nasty 300 grain JHP load for the 44 mag. we use for hogs. I shoot a Ruger Super Blackhawk. I would be happy to share the loading info. if you are shooting a stout gun. I wouldnt try it in a cheaper model firearm.
