Nicely played! On all counts.
Good luck! I'm not too far from you, in Nelson County.Dandy of a buck you got there! I hope to get out there before the season passes me by again. Taking one with my 45 colt henry would be a first for me with that rifle. Sure looks like it get's the job done.
You are correct. And if you go with a stout load and a 300gr bullet, you will take it beyond what the .44 can typically deliver. A poor man's .45-70, if you will.According to my quick calculations, this 45 cartridge fired from a rifle barrel carries more energy than the mighty 44 MAG fired from a revolver. No wonder it is so effective!
Thanks for sharing.
