    Better get a 44. My eight inch Colt Anaconda has been the death of many a wild hog, and it's my favorite gun. I had a guy that worked for me steal my 357 Python. A 44 is quite a bit larger than the 357, I never had to shoot it twice. The largest was a 320 pound barr.

    The only Colt I have now is an 8" ss Anaconda 44 magnum, but it is not really much fun to shoot without the porting - too much recoil. Got to love the Colts though - Bill
    I have the same pistol. I'm not a big guy, but the recoil doesn't bother me at all. I loaded some of my own that were pretty hot, and not much fun to shoot.

It is a fairly heavy gun at 4 1/2lbs, but it is supposed to be very accurate. He had taken one deer with it before selling it to me. I thought I would mention this brand in case you are still looking and wanted to consider buying one. The barrel on this one is 8.375". Bill
    I should mention that I have now shot the Taurus quite a bit and love it. The recoil is very light and the accuracy is awesome. I alternate between 38 specials and 357 mags with not much difference except for the price and sound. There is a one click difference in the sight setting at 75 ft. which is the maximum at the indoor range I use. Bill

    I've killed more than a few wild hogs in my day. I use an 8 inch Colt Anaconda. You should go with a 44.

    A 357 will make you go deaf. It's more of a loud crack, and the 44 is more of a boom.

    I recently bought a 454 Casull, but I have been warned about the recoil - even though mine has porting. I have yet to shoot it, but I got some 45 long colts to try in it first. I understand they produce much less recoil than the 454 Casull cartridges. I will try to remember to post what I think about the gun. Bill

    Last Sunday, I got a chance to shoot a few pistols including the 454 Casull. It actually had less recoil using the 45 long colts than the Anaconda 44 mag (non ported). It had about the same recoil as a non ported 357 mag. I have not shot an actual 454 Casull round yet, but I am not nearly as intimidated as I once was. Bill
