Controlling the gun / and effective fire is the key in my opinion. If you want to kill game cleanly - and efficiently -you need to practice with the same load you intend to hunt with. Personally a .44mag with a factory load 240gr - is a very effective weapon. I enjoy shooting it on the range - and I've carried it often in the woods fishing and hunting - for bear etc.

But it's not a gun / load that someone who doesn't have the hand / arm strength to control ought to try and use effectively - nor should any of us use unless we practice with it. Even though I'm a 'senior' I'm still 6'5" and 260 lbs so handling that gun has never been a big issue with me - even with an 8 3/8" barrel which I prefer in a S&W mod 29 revolver.
