I finally got a chance to go to the range with my recently acquired 444S. My son and I were very impressed with the gun. It had enough punch to let you know you were shooting with the big boys, but very manageable and not very hard on the shoulder. We shot a box of the 265gr FTX Leverevolution, unfortunately I am going to have to put a scope on it if I want to deer hunt with it. I might as well just not fight the inevitable. We also sighted in my son’s .243, kind of funny seeing the difference in hole size on paper. Here’s a pic of my son shooting. Also got to check out the new Busch Wildlife Shooting Range, they did a very nice job upgrading their facility.
