    I didnt know I could get this close....................

    Went out to the range today and set the scope on my 454 pistol at 100 yards. This is a 12" target.
    I had no idea I could do this good,,,,two bullet's in the same hole,,,,wow!
    I just hope I can do the same when the deer walks out......Ha-Ha-Ha.

    That's some dandy shooting. Have you hunted deer with a handgun previously ?

    I killed 6 hogs last year with it at about 30 yards,,,this will be a challenge for me at 100 yds.

    100 yds is a long shot with any handgun. I'd suggest limiting your hunt to a closer distance. Last thing you want to do is wound a deer and not down it.

    That is some great groups, but will the round, coming out of a shorter barrel than a rifle, still pack the punch to down a deer cleanly? I'm asking not to doubt you, but because I have never hand gun hunted deer before.

    Im no expert,,,but a 260Gr bullet @ 1800 fps should have enough kinetic energy to go through a deer at 100yds......
