Default 44 Mag -shotgun replacement

Just replaced the old slug gun with a new 44 mag handi rifle (H&R).
have read mixed reviews, but I hunt in thick woods and am just looking for <75 yard accuracy.

I have seen a 44 mag drop deer, and you cant "kill a deer deader than dead" so I'm not worried about the switch from a devastating lightfield slug, to a 44 LeveRevolution.

I have attached a target from Friday, 50 yards. Would you be satisfied with the results? Seems to do about the same as my slug gun....

PLEASE NOTE: exceptionally windy day....

I also hunt in thick woods with lots of dog fennel growing around my stand so I never see the deer until its within that range. I carry a 44 mag as a side arm when im out just in case. I've used it on occasion to finish one off a time or two its quite effective. As far as your accuracy is concerned it looks to me like you wouldn't have much problem laying them down. Good hunting.
