Congrats on a very nice bull ! A great hunt for you and your son !

I am surprised that you were only using 80 gr of pyrodex powder pushing a 458 grain projectile.
I always used 90 gr of pyrodex by volume shooting a 350 gr TC maxihunter bullet out of my TC White Mountain Carbine.

I have a TC Hawken that I use 90gr of pyrodex and a 375 gr TC maxiball and almost switched to 100 gr of powder thinking 90gr is not enough.
I guess I would be wrong looking at your bullet performance with 80gr of pyrodex pushing an even heavier 458 gr bullet out to 250 yards.
My shots would all be less than 100 yards . You made one helluva shot ! Congrats !
