    very few people are good shots with a .45acp, hard to get a decent group at 20 yards mush less
    put it behind a pigs ear especially if he is a big #300 and might be coming your way, you will
    find yours...

    aint ever messed with black powder rifles or pistols, but cant see how they could handle a
    devastating load. just my opinon, maybe they can, but I know I am around big pigs 365 days a
    year in the past...

    I would use a .357 if I had to, but I think the .41 or 44 mag is minimum for some of the big

    lots of pros and cons, to me after all the pros and cons, the .22-250 does the best, .223
    cheaper and more availble, .204 a small bullet at long range. choose your poison but for me the
    .22-250 will k...

    about getting tagged in the forehead by an ejected round, as Homer Simpson would say "DOH!!!!".

    I got Ultradot red dots on a mini 14 and an AR15, great for 100 yds, maybe further, I use mine
    on hogs and coyotes, good fast target acquisition for about $150.:cool:
