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.
