How many of us deer hunt with our Cowboy revolvers and leverguns? What are the distances and loads you use?

Thanks,
Timberwolf

You bet!

Have shot one deer with the .44 Mag Super Blackhawk, load was 280gr. WFNGC @ 1350fps.

Two with .357 Blackhawk, 180gr. FNGC, ~1200 fps.

One hog with Marlin 336 / .35 Rem / 200 gr. Rem ammo.

Not exactly 'cowboy' loads but I bet the cowboys would have been darn glad to have them!

TW
Have taken two deer out of VT. with my Winnie Trapper .45colt( showed you the pic)  The ave. distance for VT was about 40 yd. the first dropped where it stood, and the second went about 15yrds. and threw in the flag!  For both Majestic animals I used 23gr. of H110 with the Sierra 240's{JHC} made for the LC.
 Both bullets were recovered in the far side hide,completely mushroomed and deformed from passing thru the animal.
 I'm patiently waiting for Marshall's 260 bullets[keith style] to use as my hunting round.  I use the 240's in my 4 5/8" Ruger B/W ss also... they are VERY accurate! in the pistol.
 Took some close in coy-dogs with my 625MG using Magtech's cowboy loads. Big bang---dead critter!

You bet although they probably don't eat real good!
