I recently inherited my dad's prized .38/.44 Outdoorsman, a tack driver I grew up shooting at paper. Are the +P loads suitable for game as large as hogs and deer?
I see reload info for a 168 grain Keith bullet at +- 900 fps.

The 38/44 was a .38 Special revolver with the frame of a .44. +P, while FAR less powerful than a .357 Magnum, is borderline for hogs (IMHO) but should not hurt that tank of a revolver. Lovely guns, those were.
