FYI, rifle rounds are quite ineffective against a charging pit bull, unless you catch it in the head. Or the heart.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

Long story short, if the dog isn't really committed to ripping your face off it will probably run away...otherwise, it will rip your face off.

I was on a call where there was a dog kept approaching me and barking. All I did was spray a line in the grass between myself and the dog (the dog was not sprayed). The dog didn't like it and stayed on 'his side' of the line and I was able to do what it was I was there to do.

I can't say that it would work for all dogs; it just worked this one time.

12 gauge to the head or face of the animal.
