Tycer, I am totally surprised, I would have thought that people that use there Revolvers for hunting, would have jumped all over this post. Accuracy and killing efficiency relative to meplat size. Thanks for the answer, maybe it will get people thinking.
Evidently they are more interested in the act of hunting than figuring out what meplat size/accuracy for the game they are pursuing would produce the most humane killing of the animal! /images/emoticons/134.gif
