What one shot accuracy? Hit the heart of a deer ?? Yes at 200 yards if you do your part and learn the bullets drop of your loads. You should have been flinging lead by now and know for your self. Don't skimp on ammo. buy something like this if you don't load your own.

or the 240gr sp or hp here- http://www.doubletapammo.net/index.php?route=product/category&path=125_195

Any of these should bump up to 1700fps from that barrel.

Thanks! I am currently in a situation with no long ranges nearby. But next year I will be back to a good 200 yard commercial range, and will be able to mix my own to suit. I just can't make myself trust the 25 yard results extrapolated ten times!

I don`t think I would stretch a .44 Mag. out to 150 yards, that big ol heavy bullet drops pretty quick !..............

303tom You don't think ? Do you mean you don't know?? Have you bother to see what a can be done with a zero of 150 to 175 yards. You do know that guys kill deer at 200 yards with revolvers?? And for the reloaders hotter and heavier can get in to the lower end for 1900 to 2000fps with bullet weights of 275gr to 325gr. You do need to know your limits for sure.

NO, I do know, I have over a dozen Handi-rifles, one of which is a .357 Mag. even loaded to the max, & with a pointed bullet I will not push it past 150 yard, I shoot loads in my Handi-rifles that I can not show you here............So I do know what can be done with a rifle zeroed to 150 yards !..............

Oh A 357 REM MAG , so at best your comparing a hotter loaded 180gr or 200 gr at 1600 to 1700fps compared to much heavier and faster loads. Uhmmmmm. So that lets you know the 44mag can't do beyond 150 yards in a rifle. Good to see you have real world experience with a 44 mag rifle . You don't hunt with slug guns and sabots slugs ether do you. Being a handi rifle owner I guess your a member at graybeard outdoors?? Go tell those guys a 44mags no good past 150yards. ha

Well I was`nt going to compare it to my .444, & beings I don`t have a .44 mag. the .357 mag. was as close as I could get, & I never ONCE said it could`nt do it. I believe what I said was, (I don`t think I would stretch a .44 Mag. out to 150 yards, that big ol heavy bullet drops pretty quick) I won`t stretch my .444 out much past 200 yards, you are the one that started the argument by telling me (I don`t know). Yes I Do Know !...........
