    Any thoughts as to the best ammo for all around shooting at say 100 yds with a Ruger 77/44? Hunting Deer and Hogs.

    You will gain between 300 to 400 feet-per-second (fps) firing the same full-power .44 Magnum load from the rifle barrel, due to its closed breech and longer tube. I reload, and like the Hornady XTP in 240gr. It shoots well in my lever gun, or pistol.
