Let me start a war. Looking in my Speer manual, a 44 mag RIFLE will spit out a 300 gr bullet at the same velocity as a 300 gr bullet in a 454 Casull handgun. 454 is a bit wider, but the 44 would have a greated sectional density. Why is the Casull handgun considered a large game gun, but the 44 mag RIFLE is only a deer gun? Go ahead, make my day! (By the way, I own neither gun, just a 45 Colt).
