    wildey questions

    has anyone owned or shot a wildey in 45 win mag or 475 wildey mag? i hunt hogs here in central tx and need a pistol with some big knockdown power. wondered about wildey's reliability and cartridge availability. i know a revolver would work better , but i'm intrigued by this gun.

    44 AutoMag

    I, along with most old s like me, have shot a .44 AutoMag for sport, never owned one though. I am sure it has a great deal of knockdown power but I'd feel just as comfortable with a S&W Model 29 or a Ruger Red Hawk or Super Red Hawk in .454 Casull when the price is considered. The Wildey is a super weapon and if the price will bear it, go for it. Handles recoil well for the AutoMag at any rate. I am sure others will chime in.

    .45 win mag, now that would make a great carbine round for something like the Highpoint or Walther carbines. Or how about for a H&K MP-5?

    ammo availability could be a problem and have to mail order
    44mag ammo is everywhere
    if you want that much power i think i would look at the S&W 460mag that takes 45lc, 454casull, and the 460 mag - very versitile
