Has to be the 45 cal HP.
I second that.....love the .45ACP
Nice chart thanks for sharing it with us. Got to love the size of the 45.
The 45 is a devastating round. I have seen its effects on a deer at 60 yards. .451" size hole in one side 4" hole out the other side
Nice round,but I prefer the 44 mag.
A .45 ACP on a deer? You sure it wasn't .45 LC? I've not seen too many .45 ACP deer rifles.
My favorite round is .357 Mag. It offers the user a wide variety of hand-load and factory ammo options plus the added benefit of being able to shoot .38 Spl out of the same gun. Variety is the spice of life.

.45 acp in an auto pistol and .44 mag in a revo for me
Back a couple years ago, I bought a HiPoint carbine in .45 acp, JUST TO SEE, what that handgun round could/would do out of a long barrel.
I promise you, that at 60 yds it would knock a deer down instantly.
It amazed me at the force the .45 acp has at that range.
That being said, it is one of my favorite rounds, but my favorite ALL AROUND round is .357 magnum.
I would imagine a big ol' 230 gr bullet coming out of a 17-inch barrel would pack quite a punch. To be honest, I had no idea there were so many makers of 45 ACP carbines. I very well may stand corrected.
The one that knocked um down!
I never mentioned acp. I shoot 45 cal 300 gr hornady xtp out of a 454 casull. My niece who is very small frame uses a hi- point in 45 acp carbine. They will both do the job
I own more .45 caliber platforms than all the other calibers put together...
45acp kicks butt....but my favorite round to shoot is a 9mm......
In my opinion, the .45 Colt.
Depends on what the situation is, but... I would have to say the .22lr has brought more smiles to my families faces than any other round that has been fired. That includes target practice, hunting and plinking. For shear enjoyment, big and bigger may not always be the answer.
Me like this un, and of course my 45-70 barrel https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=568569749844122&set=vb.100000733051069&type=3
330-30 with 165 Nosler and a heavy powder charge
I have 3 calibers that I like. 1).357 mag. I shoot it in my .357 Lever Action and my Revolver and I can also shoot .38spl and .38 +P in them as well. 2) .45LC I have tow guns that shoot this caliber. One is a Rossi Ranch Hand Lever hand gun and the other is a Rugar Blackhawk single action. And last is my 1911-A1 that is in .45acp. This one I'm still getting use to. And I reload my own ammo for all of them. And when I do my reloads I always do loads that are mid to low range when I reload. That way the recoil is not so bad and it saves wear and tear on the firearms.
I agree the 357 is king for me but my 41 mag is climbing fast.
