:lol: just depends how you load them up bob :lol: .I had a marlin 44 mag about 12 years ago and used it for hunting the brush.I took several deer with it and had a friend talk me out of it.
my last hog hunt shots were 10-50 yards so I think this little stubby will workout just fine.now I just need to find a load that the 629 and the carbine likes and I'll be set.I brewed up a batch of my 429421's to work with.I will have a range report soon.

follow up

went to the range this morning and shot it.it is handy stubby carbine.
my bud had his chrony set up so gave it a try.

my cast 250 gr with 16.0 grs 2400 avg 1357 fps.I am sure that would do in mr piggy is short order :D .it was holding a 1 to 1 1/2 group at 50 meters which is MOP (minute of pig) :lol: .

I also put a few rounds thru the ruger 44 mag.the above load shot great and I would say the recoil was stiff in the ruger.the most accurate load in the ruger was 7.5 gr's with my 250 gr bullet.it was cutting a ragged hole with that load.
anyways a great way to spend the day.
