    Memories...11 point with a 30 Herrett MP 312-159 HP Powdercoated

    2 years ago I was lucky enough to harvest this 11 point with a 30 Herrett MP 312-159 HP Powdercoated
    It was a great day in the woods .. Late afternoon about 20 minutes before dark and this 11 point buck decides to cross the field about 70 yds away
    I centered the crosshairs just behind the shoulder and fired the 14" contender
    perfect hit.
    Deer ran about 40 yds and piled up
    and it was all because of what I learned here !!!

    Good memory!

    I have not scored yet with my 30 Herrett but hope to. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Fishman I have scored with both a 30 and a 357 herrett.
    Next I hope to get one with my 14" 45-70 contender

    Congrats, that is a Nice buck!

    Load/ velocity with your Herrett if you have it available.
    I have mine shooting about an inch at fifty (3) with RCBS 150 and I am guessing 1500-1600 fps

    I started hunting when I started casting/loading and finally got a small buck last year, with a cast boolit that made from wheel weights. I saved the piece of brass... it's a neat feeling to go from raw materials to meat.

    Hi Smoke,
    A quik question, what did you use to crimp your rounds? I have an old set of dura-chrome dies that don't seem to want to crimp?
    thanks, Mick

    to top that off I was very sick that day .. running a fever hence the red face and triple layer of coats
    Now add the vertical shoulder holster bulging out under the left arm and I look like a 400 lb drunk

    kind of felt like one after having to muscle this buck on the 4 wheeler by myself and sick
