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.

Very nice. What are your rifle's and load's particulars?


I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubblegum.

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).

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

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.

Took a WT doe this morning at 9:30 with the 7x57 1A.

92 yds, broadside & clueless ain't hard but I didn't scorn her for bein' easy.

I had my 1A 257R out this morning and a couple of does got a free pass.


There is no accounting for taste.

Experience is a great thing as long as one survives it.

Generally, there ain't a lot that separates the two however,
Barely making it is a whole lot more satisfying than barely not making it.

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.

Anyone who claims the 30-06 is not effective has either not used one, or else is unwittingly commenting on their marksmanship.
