Thinking of getting a Winchester 94 Trails End for Cowboy Action Shooting, but I want to be able to hunt white tail deer with it as well. Where I hunt, max range would be 75 to 100 yards. I was wondering what factory load would be best for "knock down" power out to 100 yards for either caliber. "Buffalo Bore" looked best on paper for both calibers, but can't find any field reports on it.

Thanks

Factory load? Go with the .44 Magnum. For a maximum range of 100 yards I'd use the common 240 gr. JHP. Sight in at 100 and you'll be fine at any range in-between.

The .44 Magnum still kills a lot of deer in the Northeast each season.
