I would like to and something to your 44/45 caliber article and that is the 460 S&W is the first revolver cartridge that allowed shooting game at well over 200 yards!! Because of it’s speed it retains the same energy as a 44mag at those distances. As far as choosing the right bullet, nothing beats a hard cast lead bullet, period! It will ALWAYS do what needs to be done! The flat metplate nose creates a “splash” effect, liquifying tissue at 3 times the diameter of the bullet. Then there’s a secondary wound channel that is 3 times that of torn flesh and ripped blood vessels. That’s a 4” hole obliterated through an animal with a.433 diameter bullet, and they always exit the animal! And after all, two holes bleed better than one!
I read your 3 part series on hog revolvers and enjoyed your prospective. I personally prefer the bullet to stop just inside the hide on the far side of the animal, transferring all its energy. You, along with the majority of the world did however forget about one of my favorite .357 rounds; the .357-44 B&D. As a .44 Magnum necked down to accept a .357 projectile it is no slouch in performance.
Corey, the series was about factory calibers available in factory guns. If I included every caliber out there I’d still be shooting pigs. What was said about the 357 maximum can be said for the 357B&D, it is a fine round.
