44 rem mag Lever Action hunting load?

Hi all!
I want to use my Marlin 1894 44 rem mag for deer-hunting (European roe-deer - about 40 lbs life-weight, maybe wild boar, too). Any suggestions for the bullet? will shoot max 100 yards, Hodgdon H110 is on the bench...
Thanks!

I would say what you need to do is get yourself a reloading manual by one of the powder or bullet manufactures and follow their recommendations. As far as what works for me quite possibly will be a problem for you and I wouldn't even begin to recommend a load.

the problem is not the data - I have enough of that! But the data does not say how the bullet works on game! So: Cast lead, simple hollow point...?
