Default Handgun for Deer/Hogs

Looking to buy a revolver or semi-auto handgun for deer and pigs. What are the most common / best models for this type of hunting. 20-120 yds range.

For my money, a 10mm auto for closer shots, or a .41, .44, or a .45 Colt for longer. I would want a red dot or scope for anything over 40 yards, but I can’t see as well as I used to. I use all of the above.

Iíve always wanted a 10mm, but not sure itís a good choice for the longer part of my desired range. The other calibers probably for the bill.

Any suggested makes/models?

A Ruger Super Blackhawk hunter in .44 Mag, topped with a 2x scope would be perfect.

460 S&W magnum or 500 S&W magnum....don't be messing around with anything smaller unless you plan to carry it on your person quite a bit.
You can put either a red dot or low power scope on either of the magnums I mentioned above.

Any good name brand revolver in a caliber starting in 4 will work. In single actions Iím a Ruger guy, mainly because a Freedom Arms is too expensive. Smith and Wesson makes some very good revolvers also. If you get a Ruger Blackhawk or Super Blackhawk thatís not the Hunter version, itís still very easy to mount a reflex, dot, or scope sight on them. No drilling and tapping required.
I prefer the Bisley grip frame, but you may prefer the plow handle grip.

I’d probably go with a 629 with a scope if you’re dead set on a revolver. If you don’t mind a single shot, an encore in 308 would be my choice.

This. Especially if you don't hand-load.

10mm is a flat shooting round surprisingly. Especially if you handload.
I'm partial to my rock island 1911 in 10mm. Easy enough to find a g20 or g40 though.

In revolvers, especially if you don't reload, it would be hard to beat a 44 mag. In Single shots 30-30 or 308 would probably top the list.

120 yards is a long ways for me to accurately shoot a scoped revolver, I would have to practice alot I guess. I can do it with my Contender and get 3-4 inch groups at 150 yards, but not all the time.

There was a time I hunted with a Remington XP100 in 35 remington for several years and was fairly good at taking animals with it. I believe my best was around 150 yards on a cull and I sure was proud of that one.

Versatility and availability. Take the 44 mag for example, you can shoot 44 specials out of it and but factory loads that range from 180 to over 300 grains. And you can buy the standard 240 Hollow point rounds just about anywhere you buy ammo. You can't do that with %99 of the other handgun rounds people like to use. I like a 475 linebaugh the best, but if a person doesn't reload it is probably a bad choice.

Ok ya that makes sense. Thanks.

Anybody use a .45 ACP for hogs/deer at closer range? Sounds like a 10 mm is highly recommended by some, so a .45 ACP should be right up there with it I would think.

45 would work, and so will the 10mm, but many people try to put the 10 with the 41 mag, and it ain't one. The 10 is basically the same power as a 357 mag, both of which will work, just don't believe the 10 hype and understand that it is good, but many people act like it is a 500 mag haha

Depending on the loads you use, the 10mm overpowers the .357 Mag significantly, mainly because of bullet weight and bullet diameter, but as you said, the .41 Mag it ainít !

Iíve killed several trapped hogs with a .40 S&W, some with a 10mm, and didnít head shoot them. I was kinda wanting to see the difference in damage. Thereís a pretty good difference in penetration between the 40 and the 10mm when shot through a shoulder. I was wondering if I could break a big hog down with the .40 I carry. My conclusion was....maybe

Both these hogs were killed in a trap under duress. Me and the hogs all ! Suffice it to say by the time I had them both dead I had emptied my Shield plus a spare mag. My Jack Russell got in there with them and I was afraid for him. I hope thatís as close as I ever come to a gunfight because they soaked up a lot of lead before they gave it up !

Kinda, if you look at top loads for both (buffalo bore outdoorsman type) the the 357 does carry more energy, and you are correct that the 10 does have the wight advantage (180 vs 220), but that is still not the whole story as sectional density edge goes to the 357 and the meplate sizes are about the same. Meplate determines wound diameter in hardcast and sectional density determines penetration. So the 357 and 10 are basically the same. This trend is continues across pretty much all like ammo, i.e. not cherry picking a top load and putting it up against a midrange load. They are both good loads, but both fall well short of stuff like the 44 mag etc. I just want to point that out for the OP, as the 10 seems to hold mystical status with some people

in a semi auto the 10mm is the best choice all around when you consider range, weight, trajectory, recoil, and size...

in a revolver you can get bigger and smaller but all around the 44 mag was and still is king of the hill,,,, bullets from 200 to over 300 grains,, trajectory well beyond 100 yards with sufficient power, recoil with some loads can be stout, but controllable ,, weight can be varied from heavy to light weight, barrel lengths from 4 to 12",, ammo can be found from multiple manufacturers nearly anywhere ,, you also have the option of 44 specials ,,, speed loaders and holsters are easy to come by also.....

i have killed game with both the 10mm and the 44 mag,,, i have also shot many thousands of rounds from both,,,,,

having said that my actual favorite is the 41 mag

When you want thirty rounds at ready feeding from a glock mag the 10 is, in fact, magic. Comparing it to these big bore wrist breakers it does not look as great!

I killed my buck this year on opening morning with a 10mm, 5" 1911, running a 200gr XTP-- it is plenty good medicine for deer and hogs.

27 yard shot, tucked into the shoulder and dropped him in his tracks. Very fun gun, has more character than a glock (which I carry for work daily). I had a rifle but this guy came by quickly and wayyyyy to close for me to get the rifle out the window without getting busted.

BUT- for running around the lease a revolver might be more practical for the simple ability to put some snake shot in AND have big game bullets available as well.

What barrel length is minimum for such a long shot, assuming your average distance would be say 70 yards? And can most of these rounds be accurate at that distance?

I agree, just many people don't seem understand or want to admit that a 10mm has less power at the muzzle than a 44 mag has at 100 yards. The 10 is good for what it is, but it is really not the 120 yard gun that the OP asked about.

7.5 is plenty in revolvers and shorter is doable, but you will start to lose some velocity in the magnum calibers. And most big bore revolvers are surprisingly accurate, the person pulling the trigger is generally the deciding factor. The encore/contender type pistol are very capable of sub moa accuracy and plenty of power for shots considerably further than 100 yards, but once again, it takes some trigger time to be able to make those shots

I am sure people have shot further and will disagree with me, but i would want to keep the shots within 50 yards and only take quality shots, no hard angles etc. When you go to something like a 44, you start removing a lot of limitations

Ok this may sound ignorant but Iím going to ask the question anyways... what about a .44 mag Desert Eagle? Doesnít have the barrel length to achieve the effective distances like a revolver Iím assuming...

The problem with the desert eagle is that you lose all of the versatility of the revolver. The DE needs full power rounds of the roundish nose variety. If you are only looking to shoot 240-300 jhps, it might be ok. But, if you want to go with the WFN leads that really open things up with 44, you can't. Also DEs can be finicky about ammo in general. They do have 6 and 10 inch barrels so barrel length wouldn't be an issue, but for a hunting hand gun they fall far behind a revolver IMO, because of the lack of versatility in the ammo you can use

They do have 6 and 10 inch barrels so barrel length wouldn't be an issue, but for a hunting hand gun they fall far behind a revolver IMO, because of the lack of versatility in the ammo you can use
And theyíre heavy. And huge. And the triggers are usually not good.

I just sold a Glock 41 (.45) that I shot several deer and quite a few pigs with but couldn't shoot the groups I wanted. Just bought a new stainless Blackhawk in 357 6.5" barrel an shooting 1.5" groups. Cant wait to see what damage it will do. Im loaded with the buffalo bore 125gn barnes vortex bullet rollin out at over 1700fps an pushing 700 pounds of energy. Its some HOT stuff.

Pretty much exactly what I have and love it. No sense in using a long range rifle for a 50 yard shot

I love my TC encore in 30 FPJ, 155 gr berger VLD hunting drops them in their tracks.
