Funny pic... I'm with JonM especially if a .45 is all you have it should do the trick using +P will help with the energy they have up close should stop either but once again its the placement.

Then how do I shoot deer at 300 yards???? Plus I don't have irons on my rifle. Like I have said 2-3 times. I am not going to hunt hogs or cougars. They have ben sighted a lot this season while deer hunting. The .45 is the only side arm I have other than a .380. Working the bolt on my 06 is not going to get led on target fast enuf. So if I miss the first time I might be screwed. You don't have to tell me .45 is not a good round for hog. I knew that going in. I just wonted to know what the best round would be if I had to use it.

Folks...he knows that a .45 is not ideal for hogs...he's not going to be hunting for hogs or mountain lions with it...it's a bug...back up gun.

I say go with a +p ammo or charge when carrying it. I carry a 9mm as my sidearm with FMJ and XTP alternating for just in case. We don't have mountain lions around where I hunt but we do have black bears and hogs. I carry a 7mm rem mag but figured I can unload my 9mm in case of an emergency. My bolt action, I would be to unload fast enough in a just in case situation.
