for the last couple weeks, it's been a CVA Buckhorn .50 stoked with a 240xtp on top of 90 grains of Pyrodex RS loose.

this week, it's a Marlin 336 chambered in 30-30, loaded with a 150gr Federal PowerShok

I have killed a doe and a four point buck with a little 50 cal flintlock. I now have switched to a 58 cal flintlock. In both rifles I use patched round balls lubed with bear lard. The 50 uses 70 gr of GOEX 3-f and the 58 uses 90gr of GOEX 3-f.

The rut is about to begin and I like having the extra horsepower of the .58

Just got back from the range, and I have finally figured out m load for this year.

Gun season I will use the Genesis, with 80 grains of loose 777, and a 245 grain AT Powerbelt.

ML season I will have my Wolf, with 80 grains of loose 777,and a 295 grain AT Powerbelt.

I should have my tc triumph this week with the omega bdc scope. Planning on 100 grains of 777 and the 250 shockwave sabot. Might shoot the 777 pellets to see how they shoot.

Remington Genesis
Cabela's Pine Ridge 3-9x 40
Two pyro pellets
250 gr SST
Winchester 209

Bought the gun, scope, bases and rings last year for less than $150 after discounts and rebates. I feel like for once in my life I got waaaaaayy more than what I paid for.

Another long dead and buried thread has risen from the grave, originally posted 10/28/2007. Well, at least people are starting to use the "search" function!

To give my input (again), my early ML season is already over, and I shot my deer with a 300 grain Barnes Expander-MZ bullet fired from my Savage 10ML-II by 43.5 grains Accurate Arms 5744. Bullet went 3/4 of the length of the deer that was shot in the shoulder quartering towards and exiting just in front of the left ham. I wish I could post a picture of the recovered expanded Barnes, but I've never recovered one yet! They're the Energizer bunny of bullets... they just keep going and going...
