    Arsenal 311-170 RF

    A buddie's daughter didn't care for the recoil of his Howa .308 with factory ammo. She didn't mind my cast/powder coat load, 26.5gr. H4895, at around 1700fps.

    Hunting in Cleburne county, she shot her first deer, a spike at 30 yards broadside, a little far back. It fell down a small mountain for about 200 yards, leaving a large blood trail. Hit the back of a lung, blew apart the liver, and got into the guts a little. Baseball-size exit wound.

    Good going, congrats to the young lady and thanks to you for helping another new hunter.

    Is that one of the Mossberg Flex rifles she's using?

    It's a Howa 1500 heavy barrel with collapsible stock. I don't know the model name.

    Good job, both of you! I had a similar project last year and you have every reason to be proud of the results. Thanks for taking the time to help a young hunter.

    Great Job. Loaded some 30-30 up for my nephew but he has not got the opportunity to pull the trigger on one yet.
