Immediately after a sound-barrier-breaking rifle report, jacking the rifle's action isn't that unbearable - except in the near-field. Would an animal in earshot flee following working the action? Perhaps, if they were not already shot, curious, dumbfounded, or had not already departed due to the rifle report.

The Papoose I had was pretty accurate. Forget the details because it was probably 20 years ago that I owned it.

T/C Contender's with factory 10" and 14" barrels should fit the bill. The 10" barrel I've got that easily keeps groups under an inch with a couple different loads at 25 yards.

On my belt a have my 32 long for squirrels on the ground, my 454 in case I run into a bear to close and my AR15 in case I run into an unreasonable pot farmer. It was a bit unhandy in the begining but you learn to live with it! Be prepared! :-)

LOL! Why not just get the 101st Airborne to tag along.? One would think the 6.5x55 would do it all with the proper ammo!
