I've never been deer hunting but does .38spl and 45acp actually have the umph to reliably take down deer?
I mean even from a rifle you're only looking at what 25-35% increase in velocity?

On the other hand some of those calibers approved are quite fierce, the .500 S&W I think runs around 1800-2000fps iirc, and has similar energy to a .308 (just twice as heavy and about 2/3rd the speed)

Perhaps it's the velocity they are concerned with for not allowing rifles?

Unless i'm mistaken this round is also known as the .45 Schofield from the late 19th century. Maybe not the wimpiest caliber on the list, but generally speaking less "oomph" than a .45 Colt or .45 acp.

If it wasn't for Cowboy Action shooting bring it back from the dead there'd be virtually no brass or loaded ammo available for the .45 S&W a/k/a .45 Schofield.

So is it just the cartridges listed or is it any straight walled cartridge currently legal in ah bad gun now. I saw a clip that said that all the straight walled cartridges currently legal now would be allowed and I have also saw the list of specific cartridges. I was just seeing if I could use my 450 marlin or if I need to save up for a new rifle. Either way thanks to everyone for their hard work.

For now it is just the cartridges on the list.

It is important when hunting to know your limitations and to know the limitations of the equipment you are using. I have taken deer with loads in SA revolvers limited to low velocity loads that were in the 45acp class. I simply limited my shots to about 30 yds or less and only took the same kind of shots I take with arrows. No problem. The 38 special is down there but in a rifle with a heavy charge and a heavy well-constructed bullet it could get the job done if you understand the limitations and shoot accordingly.

The trajectory of the bullet is the main concern. The slow bullets drop much faster and so have shorter ranges.
