Lets keep it respectful here, shall we? Especially when you're talking with someone who has been on these forums much longer with you. No need to disrespect each other over a difference of opinion.

Also, do YOUR research first. Elephants and rhinos are both on the endangered species list. Hunting them would be considered poaching. Maybe killing them would be ok in defense? I'm not up to date with the laws on that.

In any case, gun manufacturers wouldn't make guns (same goes for calibers) which are specifically FOR things on the endangered species list. I'm sure there's all sorts of laws which could implicate them. So no, more powerful rounds are not FOR elephants and rhinos.

Two second google search:

I have the Smith and Wesson 44 mag "classic" which has no flutes in the cylinder. Plus four postion front sight. (25 yd, 50, 75, 100) I have never been disappointed.

By the way we dont need manufactures to tell us what type of game each caliber is for, any gun enthusiast will know

Which means its a subjective, opinionated thing. Maybe your opinion is that 44 magnum isn't effective against grizzlies, whereas of course there are people out there who have a different opinion. I'm sure a lot of those people have taken down grizzlies with a 44 magnum.

I don't care one way or the other, as I don't currently own a 44 magnum and don't have any immediate plans to buy one. My only point really was to not make such asinine comments on here. Everyone is mostly pretty friendly, and I've been watching and reading the threads for longer than I've been a member here. We don't need people mouthing off for no reason and ruining the atmosphere.

For class assignments, myself and others have performed necropsys on 2 brown bears and found slugs, a small caliber rifle (22) and yes, a 44 magnum or special in ones hide and just under the fat before even penetrating into its vitals. One of these bears died eventually from starvation due to having part of its lower jaw half removed from probably another bear. The other bear was shot in town with a 30/30 and bled to death. Sometimes a 44 magnum or even larger will not kill an animal as often as some of the posters here think.

And Anna defiantly knows what she is talking about. Anna did not learn about these things watching Outdoor TV.

The .357 & .44 Mag. are great rounds, but if you don`t at least check into the .327 Fed. Mag you are missing out on another great round.................
