Hi fellas, I was wondering if some of you could contribute your opinions on the 44 mag. levergun for big or even dangerous game. I've played with 45 colt rugers for a few years and have read numerous articles from well renouned writers on it's capabilities, one author wrote "A 300 grain hardcast .45 caliber bullet travelling at 1300fps will penetrate a cape buffalo from stem to stern." A 44 mag from a levergun will do a hell of a lot more than that and yet it's dubbed as a "short range deer cartridge." What gives? Even in reloading manuals, look up 44 mag, rifle section it's good for deer and black bear but flip over to handguns and all of a sudden it's an elk slash "and other big game cartridge."
