Yep, that I'm always right. And, you're not experienced enough to know that.

Claiming you are always right just goes to show what a little person you are and the lack of manhood you have.


A real man owns up to his own mistakes, accepts criticism and never claims to be right all the time.


Do I possess all these..............no..............but I admit that and that is a starting point!!!

Can't so much as lean a loaded firearm on a vehicle here and the other states that I hunt in. Did you steal the golf cart you azz shot that deer from or did it belong to one of your geriatric "friends"?

ETA: Sorry CD but the rain is hammering here, it's been a long few weeks at work, and I need a good laugh.


No problem .West Texas Mule Deer hunting is ALL about vehicles as a general rule :



You'll notice that the "road" ain't much!

We do plenty of walking,climbing, and glassing , but you can't even SEE a deer out on the flats unless you can get your head above the cactus and brush.

Have you tried the Hornady 265 JSP's.?

They shoot well out of my 444. I can sometimes get 3 under an inch and 5 will almost always go about 1.5". Plenty good for what I need.

Here's what mine likes.

Hornady Case
Remington 9 1/2 Primers
Hornady 265 JSP
42.5 gr. IMR 4198
COL 2.565
Lee Factory Crimped

These Avg 2075 from my rifle.

It doesn't take a world of experience to know that your ratio of right/wrong is not that high.

That's an easy diagnosis, PhD not necessary.

I'll soon find out what the 320 CP's will do to a hog."

Still haven't shot a hog with it since we seem to have a few good bucks in my hunting pasture this year.But........ I'm tearing apart the 320 CP loads with 40 gr of 4198.

Because........

Yesterday morning my S.I.L. was complaining because he had missed a hog with his 7 Mag the day before and was concerned his scope had come un-done.The only extra rifle I had at camp was this 444 , so I told him he could use it out of a little pop-up blind I had put down on a creek crossing where there were some big deer sign.

He had barely settled in when a hot doe brought a really nice eight point to within 60 yards of the blind.He shot him in the chest and the buck just stood there,so he shot him again in the shoulder and he went down.As he was still kicking , so Jason put one in his neck.It's his best deer yet and he is excited.Probably score 125 which ain't bad for an eight point.

Not a single bullet of the three exited.

I want an exit hole on a hog and this load ain't gonna cut it.

It's kinda funny , since hogs are usually my "test medium" for deer size bullets ,but this time it worked backwards!

I'm gonna up them two grains and try for a tighter crimp,and check 'em out on a hog.

Pushing them faster is gonna help?

My old 1980 Model with the Micro Groove has ALWAYS been a tack driver...with whatever you feed it..

as I have seen with other 444 owners, that have poor groups...

most of the time it is the shooter, jerking when they pull the trigger, afraid of the recoil...

I love the 444... so I think cool!,. an 8 page thread...

instead of that, I find not 8 pages on the 444.. I find 7 pages of what an butthead a batch of people think Swampy is..

mingled with 7 pages of Swampy denying it, but providing positive proof to the contrary....

another thread wrecked... and then the wrecker denies he's a troll.... whistle
