Hey all, Quick question or 2 on hunting applications for a handgun chambered for the 45ACP. I figure there has to be more than a few of you that have tried this at some point in your hunting careers. Can you tell me how well a 45ACP+P and the 45 Super would be suited for FERAL hog hunting? Then would you mind contrasting that with the 10mm? I've been thinking about getting a new sidearm to carry when I go bowhunting for feral hogs here in Texas. I had been settled on a 45C or 44mag revolver and then I mentioned it to an online TRAD Archery acquaintance I often chat with and he started telling me about how well a 45ACP+P works and the even more effective 45ACP SUPER round, or is it just 45SUPER? Anyway, I had thought that the 45ACP was no match for the 10mm with the modern loadings that are available for pistols chambered for it. Perhaps I've been wrong, I don't know. I'd like to know more if you guys don't mind educating me on it. What I didn't know was that the 45 Super can be shot in a pistol chambered for the 45ACP with perhaps a heavier recoil spring. Is that so? Lets say I get a new G21, I figure I wouldn't have much of a problem shooting +P loads in it, but would there be any problems with shooting the 45 Super in it with the heavier spring, if that's what's needed? When I was on the Lone Wolf site the other day nosing around I saw that there are slides and barrels available that would allow me to simply swap out a barrel and maybe a slide in some cases and I would have access to a whole lot more rounds even the 10mm. So I could have a 45ACP and a 10mm in the same G21 platform. That's a pretty attractive option for someone that loves semi autos. I don't know the capabilities of these 45ACP+P or +P+ (if there is such a thing) and the 45 Super and whether they would be a good choice for hogs, a better choice than the 10mm is or at least as good. I know Buffalo Bore, Garretts Cartridges, and some others are making some really potent ammo for hunting with modern handguns that are built for it. I'd like to know more. So, if you don't mind and can spare the time, would you all care to enlighten me on these rounds and what you think of them as a backup round while bowhunting or a primary weapon for handgun hunting? Lastly, you should know that I have NEVER, EVER killed anything with a handgun. I have always wanted to hunt hogs with them though and now that I'm in Texas I can kill all the feral hogs I can find. WOOWEE. Thank you all kindly for your time and any help you care to give. Larry Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
