Yep. It has a six inch barrel on it, which is enough for Iowa where I'm at. I'm planning on using the basic 240 grain soft point white box of Winchester that you can get on any Wal-Mart shelf. I reckon this should be enough to drop any size of deer. This is also my first time hunting deer, so wish me luck. Hopefully I get something, but they are out in Iowa even though it's late in the season. Late muzzleloader to be exact, but you can hunt with handguns during this season. There's snow on the ground so they should be easy to follow the blood if I hit one and it moves.
