    I've often thought there was something magic in the last 30 min of the last day. It's worked for me several times.

    I haven't tried it but there was a write up in handloader a few years ago. If I recall it was by John Haviland. He was just splitting the nose with the foil. Him and his son had pretty good luck with them.

    Other than a few shots at targets I have no expierence with the 45-70. However I can tell you a 45 cal 255 gr at 1000 fps is certainly capable of taking deer. I would be very confident hunting black bear with it. Your load can only be more potent.

    I've watched that same show minus the feeder a few times. Always makes the hunt more interesting. Over the years I've shot several momma does. I nearly always regret it a little. These does are proven performers and taking one out will take several...

    I didn't want to rush him so I didn't try to contact him very often. I have to admit I'm a little excited now that it's nearly in sight. I was aware when I sent it that it would be quite awhile.

    I've found it's difficult to walk quiet enough that a deer can't hear you. We have a lot of turkey in the area and I've often seen deer and turkey together. Ive learned to walk thru the leaves just like a turkey. Several times I've had gobblers...

    I've had some close encounters. Would be measured in feet instead of yds. In those instances I pull the trigger, cock the hammer and let it down on the trigger. Only sound is the bolt when it drops into the cylinder. I had a coyote hear that bolt...

    Sounds like a good hunt. I have the hardest time telling whether a doe is big or small in the brush. Head length is what I look for. Im glad to know I'm not the only one that has to fight down the impulse to dip in anticipation. Lots of people...

    Ain't it grand! As said cast is hard to recover on Whitetails. I have 3 HPs that I got out of the deer, I have others but I dug them out of the ground behind them. Even the HPs usually require a raking shot to not exit. Penatration of heavy solids...

    It's the somewhat controversial load of 10 grs of unique. The 452-424 HP weighs 245 gr. It runs 1050/1070 fps or thereabouts. Ive killed several deer with this load. This is the farthest I've had one go. She had me spotted and left there like a...
