    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.

    Looks like my .280 Rem setup.

    Those are sweet little rifles, lots of options. Good choice & good shootin'.
