i had a successful javelina hunt this year in my home state.  Took this nice javelina boar on day 2 with my Dan Wesson 44 mag.  First hunt on this gun since I converted it from a silhouette gun to a hunting gun.  Made a 47 yd shot, one round, using a Barnes 225 gr solid copper hp.  Punched right through him and dropped where he stood.image.jpegImage Enlarger

To the paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers:

if you find one...what's your plan?

Great job!  My first Collard Peccary kill was with a Kimber 1911.  Stunk to high heaven….

Thanks for all the load info included with your picture. It gives me a starting point when working up a hunting load for my gun. Nice looking gun also.

I hunted 18b, it’s east of Wikieup.  And for 10Magnums, it was a factory Barnes load.  I have so many great hand loads for this gun, but I haven’t found that any of them group any better than that Barnes out of the box.  DW’s have impressive accuracy anyway.

I haven’t been that since I drove to Vegas a number of years ago great food at the little cafe there.
