Big Bore Delivery
« on: September 14, 2011, 10:47:22 AM »
Rumaging thru my drawers I found an old bullet I recovered from a moose. Said moose met his end by stopping a cal 44  265 gr Hornady FN at about 45 yards shot from a 444 Marlin. The "mushroom" is .700" and the bullet still weighs 253 gr. IMO that is OUTSTANDING performance.

To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

In a moment of mental fatigue I sold that 444.  :uglystupid2

If I would have kept it there be no need for the 45-70's I got now. Both are Handi's, and both need "bleeding" ;D

You can send them down here to me.  I'll take care of that for you.  ;)

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

You don't qualify to keep, handle or drool over duly registered Canadian firearms. :wink:

My Govt. would agree. ;D ;D

BTW. Yesterday was my first trip to the Range with my liberated from the US Handi. I found one plinker load with cast bullets that show excellent promise. 350gr. BBFN with 17 gr of Trail Boss. Now comes the selection for that Hind-Hunt.
