.41 Mag. One shot, one stop. Controlable recoil and damed accurate. IMO.

Currently, my .45 & the 870 12g. are my "heavy hitters". Need to upgrade that....I'm looking at 10mm's and would love to add a rifle to the lineup.
7mm Rem Mag is the hardest hitting one I've got in the stable now
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Lets see now.....
.45-70 405gr hard cast handloads out of a NEF single shot
.444 handloads (300gr hard cast bullet at 2100 fps at muzzle)

12 gauge turkey loads. Enuff said.

My Kimber .45 is always my favorite, but for a heavy hitter, I would have to say this in 7.62
My AR-10 is about as heavy as they come. If I had a .50BMG, that would replace this.
