If you're a deer. 80 yard shot with him bedded. A .570 ball with 105 grains of Swiss did him in. Season only lasted 3 hours. Time for bird hunting.

Yeah, they do. Black powder is useless too.

Congrats on overcoming the handicaps.

I once shot a smaller bodied deer with a 54 Cal round ball out of a Great Plains Rifle.

After the stupid black powder smoke cleared, I saw the buck right where it was standing - DRT ... WOW

That is a beautiful rifle AND a nice whitetail!!

I think it was Sam Fadala who said, "round balls kill all out of proportion to their paper ballistics." I've yet to find fault with that statement.

Well done sir, man and rifle. Doubly so, since these newfangled caplocks are known to be a rather unreliable source of ignition.

They don't tumble and unless they hit substantial bone they don't slow down very much.

30338, good deal! Good hunter to get a bedded whitetail and what a beautiful piece to do it with.

I never got into muzzleloading because I never had a nice piece to do it with. That kind of piece could get me into it again.

Cheers!

Beautiful buck! Beautiful rifle! Pretty much sums it up!
