I never could get much penetration with factory or loads from a sixgun, and soon came to prefer longer, heavier bullets that would give better penetration on stock or big game when the necessity for such use arose.

A factory load almost cost me my life while monkeying with a wounded bull elk. Had the cylinder not been loaded alternately with heavy black powder loads, that bull would have ended my hunting. With both cartridges, the case body is large and the neck short for short bullets. The charge must be held down religiously to safe pressures or it will bulge the bolt cuts in the cylinder.

My Preferences I much prefer the 44 Special and the 45 Colt cartridges for sixgun use. For the handloader, the 44 Special is by far the best of all sixgun cartridges for serious work, either target, defense, or game killing. The cylinder walls are thicker over the case body than in the 45, and the cartridge is superbly accurate. The old black powder loads with , , and grain government bullets and 40 grains of FFG black powder gave feet in the 45 Colt and would surely penetrate.

On broadside shots on both elk and goats, it went clean through unless heavy shoulder bones were hit. The and factory loads stopped under the skin on the off side on lung shots on elk. With the heavy grain handload, penetration was excellent. Another 45 Colt load that gave excellent accuracy and penetration was the Winchester grain lead bullet sized down to. It killed mule deer and wounded elk well and was very accurate.

I once had a case head separate with this load, blowing the loading gate out of the gun and cutting through the side of my trigger finger. That case had been reloaded many times, however, and the load was safe enough in good cases. The factory 45 Colt pointed bullet punched a rather small hole through game and would not expand unless it hit a heavy bone.

With that bullet I shot a great many grouse with little damage to the meat. In search of the best sixgun bullet, I designed a blunt-nosed bullet No. First in 44 Special, grain solid and grain hollow base or hollow point, then in 45 Colt grain, later in 45 semi-auto rim grain, and still later in grain solid and grain hollow base or hollow point 38 Special, these Keith bullets have proven ideal, for me at least, for all sixgun work in twenty years of continuous use.

They cut full caliber holes in anything and penetrate almost as well as the old pointed 45 Colt black powder load in solid persuasion. In hollow-point design, they will expand at velocities of 1, feet or more, and at 1, feet are very destructive to all game and ruinous to small game.

The Keith grain 38 Special hollow point, backed by The legs and neck will fly off at all angles when the bird is centered. The Keith grain 44 Special hollow point, backed by He said the hollow point was much the best for a chest or lung shot and the solid bullet best for shoulder shots to break the big cats down so that they would not fall out of the tree full of fight.

One heavy 44 Special or Magnum or 45 Colt in the same place would have done the business. Metal-patched bullets from the semi-auto pistols are simply not as good stoppers as are the soft lead bullets of the revolver, but the 45 Colt semi-auto has more actual shock on game than either the Luger or the Super I have shot enough game with all three to prove the point, to my own satisfaction at least.

Target grids and bullseye sizes are in MOA. Ideal for long-range shooting!

SIX GUNS : THE STANDARD REFERENCE WORK

When I turned the next one loose I was almost deafened by the report and saw a little flash of flame. My hand automatically cocked gun and snapped again but no report. I stopped then knowing something was wrong. The upper half of three chambers was gone. Also one cartridge and half of another case.
