http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thompson_Center_Arms Contender is the model, actually. 25grs. of 296 and a 240gr bullet ought to do it. Use at your own risk.

The AA#9 is also a good slow powder. Good for .357 high velocity loads too. The 44 should be a fine deer slayer.

Agree, looks like it's even better in a .357

I want to use it on hog.

If your after big hogs, say 250lb's and up I would consider some Hard Cast 250 gr Keith SWC's. For the smaller ones the 240 Sierra JHC's should surfice. Big hogs are pretty tough to put down sometimes, and you don't always get a perfect shot.

I haven't shot a big one yet, that one in OK was under 150. Any good sources for the lead? Local places don't carry much.

We have 3 at about 230lbs going to the Livestock Show. If they don't sell you can come test on them, but you will have to help clean them. I'll fire up the pit. LoL
