Hello. I recently purchased a Remington 700 PSS in .308. Therefore, I can no longer really justify to myself having my bolt-action .270 as well.
Therefore, I am interested in trading it for a .44 Rem Magnum pistol for hunting whitetail. I have been researching a bit, and the S&W Model 629, and Ruger Super Redhawk both look like good options. I almost opted to go for a .357 magnum, but a lot of people say that the load is a bit light for deer. Quite possible with proper shot placement, but still a little low.
I do not plan on putting a scope on the pistol, as most of my shots are less than 50 yards. Any of you guys pistol hunt and can offer some suggestions???
