    Good job! And yes, deer can be vocal on rare occasions. I've heard deer cry out or bleat at times and heard a buck grunt on my last trip.

    Good job! Meat in the freezer and some good times in the field. Hard to beat.

    The barrel is straight 7/8 octagon so inletting will be a bit easier than a swamped barrel. I've already started cutting out the channel but didn't do it the prescribed way... ;-). Doing this will also give me practice on sharpening tools... ugh!

    This will be my first attempt at stock making from a plank. I "built" the Traditions Kentucky rifle this summer because I wanted a cheap muzzleloader for deer (didn't have one) but the length of pull on the stock is WAY TOO SHORT, like 12.5 inches!...

    Better to kick yourself for passing on a gun than to kick yourself for buying it. Quite often a gun I REALLY like comes along after I pass on one that I only want to buy just because it's a good deal.

    My only experience pushing a hunting boolit that fast involved heat treating as well as a GC and a fairly hard alloy. It was a 35 Whelen and 2for some reason the rifle and the 230 gr boolit would not shoot consistently at a lower velocity. Very few...

    It's very well suited for that purpose. It's also great for most medium bore, straight wall rifle cartridges so I've had more than a few load tests indicate 5744 was the best powder for that particular rifle & boolit. Only problem is it's quite...

    I'm not a fan of Tannerite but don't much care for hogs either. Looks like one was launched quite a distance by the blast. Must admit I enjoyed that little video.

    I take the same precautions with feral hogs that I do with domestic hogs. Neither are safe if improperly handled or cooked.

    Glad to see you used enough gun for that tree rat. They can be nasty when wounded. :kidding: I don't get too upset when a wounded hog runs into the nasty bits. I just shoot another. :drinks:
