I recently hog hunted with a 1911 for the first time. What a blast. I don't reload so can anyone recommend a good factory load for the .45 acp to use on Florida hogs. It seems most factory loads are more for anti-personal use rather that the thick skin hogs.
Would like all your feed back....

If your parents didn't have any children chances are you won't either.

My mean critter handgun is a Springfield Armory TRP .45 Auto. I would not hesitate taking it into griz country.

The .45 Auto loaded with .230 grains bullets is a very power cartridge.

While prior to its acceptance, in 1910 it was tested on cattle in the Chicago stockyards with good results.


Never mistake motion for action.

Yes indeed! I still have a box of 230 G. Black Talons that I keep in my truck carry 1911. They are hard to find anymore but these days most ammo is.
