30'! Was he surrendering?
Welll...no. My favorite way of hunting is still hunting and I saw this rag horn buck, scraggly 7 point, eastern count, ambling along toward me, browsing, about 50 yards away. I tucked back between two cedar trees and just waited. I thought he was going to bust me but turned up the hill past the trees and when he got to where I could get in position to shoot I did so ever so slowly. When he hit a little clear spot, 30 ft. away, a 54 cal. round ball over 80 grs. of Ffg from a TVA Leman ended my season....and his.
You know sharps, that old Peter Capstick saying "Get as close as you can and then get five yards closer." would have probably put you on the other side of the deer.....
30 yards ? Are you sure it wan't someones pet deer?
Patches, he would have busted me then...lol!
gr, out here? Not likely, They're still seen as a source of protein...lol!
Not 30 yds, 30 feet. close enough to count all the deer's ticks on both of his sides.
Not sure if this is acceptable or not, but here goes:
MEMES NOT ALLOWED.
Heck I could have bought 3 barrets, best money I have ever spent.
I always wanted a McMillian, My cousin worked there before he went in, he said everything was top notch, QC was huge.
Bake-Lite if that's what you want to get for your 30th go for it, its all your money. I have a buddy he wanted a 57 chevy restored for his 40th. Guess what he has sitting in his garage. It cost him almost 40K.
Now he wants to sell it and buy a 62 vette for his dad before he dies.
You know, 30 ft. isn't the closest deer I killed. Ironically the closest was also killed with a flintlock, a Dixie Gun Works Tennessee Mountain Rifle in 50 cal. It was on our farm and I had a tree stand built on the fence row between my neighbor and me. Herb knew, we'd talked about it and it was ok. Herb didn't hunt...anything. There was more or less a trail that ran right along the fence row. Opening morning this 6 pointer was ambling up the trail. I was standing, leaning against one of the trees I built the stand in and when he got directly under me I leaned over and pu a 50 cal. round ball between his shoulder blades. He crumpled right there. The end of the barrel couldn't have been more 10 feet from the deer. No, I don't remember there being any powder burns.
Someone forgot to tell my 82A1 that. The main limiting factors in accuracy are the ammunition, the scope, and the shooter. With some discipline, minute of angle or thereabouts is within reach. It takes time, patience and load development, the same as in smaller calibers or any caliber for that reason.
I shot it also. So did my wife. I was supersized that the recoil wasn't that bad.
Yeah isnt that interesting? The recoil isnt bad at all.
so did you get one yet Bake-lite
