Hi guys, I wondered if anybody has a lever action rifle chambered in 44mag and conditioned for use on Chinese water deer and muntjac? 44 magnum will easily make 1000 ftlb out of a rifle barrel so muzzle energy would be ok, the rifle would only be used at short range in woods, up to maybe 100 yards maximum.
In the states they use the same rifle/calibre combination to take larger deer out to similar distances and class it as a woods/ brush gun. It is often used at close range on wild pigs where the slick lever action system and 10 shot tubular magazine lends itself well to very rapid follow up shots - should the need arise
I would appreciate your comments
Ps - I have the normal range of calibres ( 243. 270 and 308 ) already conditioned for deer stalking.
