I have just acquired a Marlin JM stamped 1894 in 44Mag. My main use for the gun is for pigs (boar) for close range, but the property i have got access to has also got fallow, What do people suggest for both, i want to stick with 1 bullet but i'm not sure what weight. I can get 240 XTP's easily not sure if they are any good tho.
What is the realistic max range for this cal? Is 150yards pushing it for Fallow?
Before i get jumped on for "better cal's" this is what i have already.2x 243, 6.5x55 and 7x57. 1 243 is a BLR
Do you need to crimp the projectile?? I'm assuming you need to, but not really that familiar with 44 mag .
