No, he went down in a heap. Lasered distance was 135 yards. I was leaning across the fence in the picture shooting towards where I was standing while taking this picture. I like this load. A lot.





Now that just looks right!

Hi Bricktop, The rifle started life as as a Nepalese Francotte Martini in 577/450. It was a wallhanger so I decided to make it usable (I'm not in to wallhangers). I bought an A&B blank 338 barrel and cut it half round half octagon, chambered it in 33 Winchester, and installed it on the action. The load was a Hornady 200 gr.sp at 2250fps.

Thats the quick story. A lot of alterations had to be made to the action to get it to work with a smokeless round.

Have been sitting rifle-less with my youngest daughter up
until this weekend... She got her first last weekend, so she
slept in and let me get out for myself a little smile

First blood for this combo, a Bergara 308 barrel rechambered
to 300 H&H. 130 Barnes TTSX over Rel-17, around 3300 mv
+- 250 yards, lung shot. My first experience w Barnes, did
the job well enough. maybe quarter sized exit, dropped at the
shot.

Rojelio,
I admire that you killed that boar with a single shot rifle, but the face on that animal looks huge. That pic has some shock value.

Sorry Clark, It was getting dark and my cell phone pics were crappy. Here's a complete view (albeit crappy).

Sometimes it's best to blend in with the herd.



This calico hoglet stood out amongst all the others. So she got nailed.

Talley one more for the Merkel!

Firearm deer season opened this last weekend, here in Indiana. I used my CVA Scout .44 mag/leverevolution ammo, to score on 2 nice does, the last 3 days.







The pics aren't the best, but you get the idea.

My son scored a small buck on the third day, with his handi rifle .44 mag/LE ammo, also.




All my hunting this fall[squirrels/deer] has been with single shot rifles.

Brickie, we grow em big here in NW Indiana. grin My heaviest buck ever weighed 226 lbs. field dressed, and my biggest doe was 140 lbs. field dressed. Add 30-35% and you get real close to the live weight.

The heaviest deer ever killed in the county I hunt in southeast Oklahoma was a little over 170 pounds; my heaviest was a little under 130 pounds.

I don't know what my 2012 single shot take buck weighed, but I do know I am 5'9" 185 pounds, and I could only lift one end.

To get him into the vehicle, I had to put a rope around his neck and winch him in.

Shot this buck with a 20 guage NEF Tracker II using a 3" Winchester Partition Gold Sabot. @ 85 yards.

When rifle hunting I mainly use Handi Rifles and Toppers. Maddog I have a CVA in 7mm-08 Stainless I am still working with to get consistent shot after shot performance.

Just returned from Kyrgyzstan two weeks ago and the new Luxus 30-06 I took worked just fine on this mid-Asian Ibex.
