"D"'s at it again
« on: February 29, 2012, 03:01:11 PM »
I took the BIG GUN ,45/70 out for a test today in preparation for bear season. I wanted to try it off my sticks and see if all was well. It was...I'm using my pet load 300 gr Hornady going 2400 fps. The first target was 100 yards using the 100 yard hash ( center) the marks on the target are an inch apart. The next one is at 200 yards with the 200 hash in the scope.My reloads are a little hotter then the "Evolution" shells and that is what the scope is for. I tried it with the 100 hash at 200 yards and I'm 9" low.Looks like the gun will do it's part if I do.. :lol: 


 
 
 
 I felt I should not have missed the last dog so I put the 22/250 on paper too. Looks like I just missed the dog.I'm shooting a speer 52 MK 3800 fps. The first one is off sticks at 100 yards scope on 5 power, the box with the picture ( Center) is about 1 1/2" square and the marks are 1" apart. The next one is at 200 yards off sticks still aimed dead on and on 12 power. All 6 shots are still all but in the 1 1/2" box.SO at 300 yards I should have been still  on fur, just missed I guess. :tickedoff

I sure hope those Hdy's hold up better then the Rems I used on a Red Deer.
I loaded well below factory level and the bullet came apart causing two exit holes in a 250 lb animal.

I shot a 350 class bull elk year before last at 500 yards with them and killed him. For a hollow point they did just what they should have done. Next time I'll use a Barnes 300 gr all copper for better resualts...
