I just started reloading a week or so ago and used up all my bullets. I never realized how much ammo I would go through reloading. Guess I need to buy some more brass, a powder dispenser (using the scale for each one is getting a little old), and alot more bullets next time around..... It was nice being able to shoot away without worrying as to much ammo I have. I was also able to set up targets 300 and 400 yards away to test my shootery. I was happy with the results. I see future dead woodchucks and crows. I might also give those barnes TSX bullets a shot. I might try for deer this fall with it from the house. I figure so many people do so well with them in the small cals I could give them a try, if they shoot well. I figure I won't lose the deer even if it runs a long ways because it's all open field. I'll see it for an awful long time. I wouldn't ever carry it in the field though. I'm not lugging a 10-11 lb varmint rifle around. That's what my Mossberg and my dad's krag and 94 are for. I just want to check it out on a deer. The conditions would have to be perfect for me to pull the trigger. From the house, deer not moving, no wind, etc. Time will tell.
