    Depends on distance but .44 magnum seems to be the bill for best between range and power.

    If you are willing to get find one, a levergun in 460S&W, you have a very good rifle for damn near anything.

    45 Colt because it can be loaded to equal performance of the 44 Magnum in the same model but with a much better selection of bullets.

          no, its staying in my house & hoping the town doesn't burn down, then slowly attempt to garden in my yard until shit gets better
          seeing as your first thought was "banditry", i'm guessing thats what you actually think you'd be doing, for as much as you mock it

            If your garden isn't up and running *before* the time you need it, you're doing it wrong. Start gardening immediately and get chickens. It's based as frick.

              i do plan to get chickens, but no idea when i'm gonna get them, still figuring out where certain shits gonna go

    44mag with 240gr hollow points even out of a rifle, a soft point probably won’t fully expand unless you exclusively take shoulder shots. deer aren’t that big

    .357 Mag is technically 'enough', but I'm in pretty dense forest where you're not likely to come across even 100 yard shots. .45 Long Colt's probably just fine but you might want .44 Magnum depending on your ammo availability in the area, .45's pretty forgiving on reloads, but factory bullets get expensive.

    No guns here, quick question:
    Did huge leather gloves really help handle firearms? He was a trickshooter after all

      it helps with everything else, old dry splintered wood, sunbeat reins, rough brush, etc

      Its just part of the attire of the time, leather gloves for a world full of rope burn, sharp rocks, cactus, and leather gear. unavoidable part of a cowboy costume, if he wasnt wearing them he'd be seen as a fake because in any real shooting situation you'd be pulling your gun in a hurry and you wouldn't take the time to remove your gloves first. Also black power guns tend to spit a bit of fire around around and they protect your hands from burn as well as anything else. Additionally if your early model revolver exploded the leather MIGHT be enough to keep your fingers attached.

      In that period in that setting if you were outside doing basically anything you had leather gloves on. Do they make shooting easier no they probably make it harder though he is probably so used to shooting in gloves that if removed them he's be less accurate purely from the change in accustomed grip.

      A little more friction for push-pull recoil mitigation. Some padding for fist frickign the lever hard and fast. That's about it.

    Historically: .44-40
    Modern: .357 magnum, though .44 magnum will obviously do the job if increased recoil and cost are not concerns.

    I don’t have ballistics models to support my claim, but heavy bullet 357 mag out of levergats were very common In my UP MI deer camp growing up.

    How about a bottlenecked 357 sending 180grs at north of 2300fps?

      Gary Reeder does the same from .44 to .41 in the .41GNR.

      • 3 weeks ago

        And the 356GNR is 41 to 357.
        They're cool cartridges, but the B&D offers more case capacity than the 356GNR and a flatter trajectory than 41GNR(in addition to a way better bullet selection).

          This I have no doubt. But Gary has been at this for over 30yrs (that I personally know of) and has Redding dies for his wildcats. He is also amazing at slickin' up a Blackhawk. Just figured it's worth mentioning for those unaware of this type. Note keeping up with him on the .500sw case.

          I wonder if you could get a desert eagle rechambered for B&D? just rechamber a 357 barrel, then slap it on a 44 gun.

            Why not? Feed ramp is only variable. My .357 DE slide is wonky enough its worth a shot.

            More attractive in a lever gun, obviously paired with a Blackhawk.

            They did. There was a 14" desert eagle prototype made in it. Gun World magazine had it on the cover.

      Vanilla is just vanilla and there is more to life than living with single minded obsession and autistic, one-trick-pony blinders on. I'm glad someone gave you a rifle. But try out a 30,000ft view someday, see the world for what it is.
