Default Guns and Loads for deer... Whatcha yall gonna use for this season's deer?

I saw afew posts like this last year but I figured I'd start one since I hadn't seen any. Just tell what ur using in both your MLgun and your load for deer (If ya have more than one go for them all). I've got about 3.

1. CVA Wolf (50 cal)- somewhere between 80-100 gr. loose Pyrodex RS with a 240 XTP
2. CVA Optima (50 cal)- 100 gr. shockey w/ 245 gr. Powerbelts
3. White Mountain Carbine(50 cal)-90 gr. Pyrodex RS with a round ball

SometimesI really wish I were choosing between 3 ML's, butnone - the-less - it is the Whites turn this season. So I will be shooting a Umag loaded with a .451/260 grain Nosler Partition, powered by 110 grains of T7-2f. The bullet rests in a MMP-HPH-12 sabot and ignited with a Remington 209-4. I'll use this during the rifle season and the late season cow elk season, probably switch to a .458/300 grain Nosler for elk.

During our late season doe season I will switch to a sidehammer... a 50 cal GM-LRH-SS barrel in a classic Renegade stock. We are required to use conicals this year in Idaho so it will be a 460 grain Bull Shop on top of 90 grain pf T7-3f - touched off with a Dynamint Nobel 1075+ cap.

Going to hunt the late antlerless season this year. My work schedule won't allow me to hunt any other time. I'm going to buy two tags, and will take both my Savage 10ML-II and my Savage 111 .30-06. I'll probably hunt the first tag with the .30-06 and fill the second with the 10ML-II.

The load for the 10ML-II will be 41gr of AA XMR-5744 under a 250gr Hornady XTP, touched off by a Winchester 209 primer.

150gr Winchester Super-X Power Points for the .30-06.

Mike
