Great thread. Good to see what the semiauto calibers can do. I have a couple set up for hunting but always default to the revolvers as I'm concerned about the effectiveness of the semiautos in comparison.

May have to rethink that position.

REFLEX64; VERY GOOD REPORT, Thks


Thanks. I went on a strange tangent with autos. I still live my wheelguns and short rifles though.

They are great on deer/hogs and with the 460 Rowland I would kill a elk or moose. Its a whole different animal.

I still don't have a 460 Rowland but hope to pick one up before deer season. Just have to decide between a 1911 or Glock platform.

I will be testing some of the Underwood ammo in my Glock 40. Their 180 grain stuff seems to have true 10 mm velocity and looks like it will do well on deer.

I used Desert Eagle .44 Mag few times and took red deer (220lbs doe) and 3 pigs (100-200lbs) at 30-60m. Every time I used 240grs XTP and always had exit wound but ones I shot quartering away boar (diagonal shot ended in spine). I preferred fine revolver's trigger, 1 lb less on the hip and variety of loads and bullet choices. On the other hand Desert Eagle was better for fast acquisition and follow-up shot if needed.

Was re-reading through this thread, and I think I have talked myself into putting away a few hundred dollars over the winter and getting a 460 Rowland conversion for my 1911...

The Rowland is nearly 44 mag power. I had some bearthooth 265gr wfngc bullets sized .451 that I would use on elk or moose. They were awesome.
