First of all, I know half the people on here will try to tell me that the .45ACP is not meant for hunting. The reasons I want to take my 45 out deer hunting is for two reasons. 1) to extend my hunting season, 2) because it is the one firearm I have that I can, not having to buy a new one. I think of it in terms of bow hunting. I KNOW I can hit targets out to 100 yards with a pistol. I have about a 50% hit ratio at under 25yards with my bow because I don't have enough time to practice it. My plan so far is to use 230gr FMJ bullets to quell and penetration issues. If an arrow can take a deer down in the right spot then a .45 hole should be as good, if not better because of wound trauma/exit wound. I have been eyeballing the Double Tap ammo with their 230gr+P 1000fps round. They also have a 255gr, but it is a little slower and lead. This would be a timber hunt, so the longest shot to even attempt would be 50 yds, and most likely nothing over 25. What do you all think?
