Default NEF, SB2 30/30 Deer Hunter One Shot One Harvest.

Well Folks, We have Anterless Deer season in For The Weekend. And the Weather is starting to Finally cool down to Hunt some Deer . So I had sometime yesterday morning. I grabbed my New Second Hand SB2 30/30 with the 3x9 Bushel Banner on it I gave it the Name "Old Faithful." First time out in the field with Old Faithful.So I always get excited To try out my Gear . I took the Ole Blue Box Ammo .150 gr SP FN . Was also Curious to see how this Ammo would perform . Well I got to the Ground Blind and wasn't there 20 min and here came the Heard . So I found the one For Harvest to Manage the Heard and to also put some meat on the table . Well Folks Old Faithful Let out a Load Crack and Down went the deer A Perfect Heart Shot the Bullet passed Right through Deer . The Deer went about 35 yards for me to Receive it .Old Faithful Performed Well. I'm happy with My New used Gun . Might have to Find a Different Round to use because I like to Drop them where they stand .But Over all not bad for a Round that cost me 25 cents. Now time to Start Thinking about Buck Season as I now know what to expect From "OLD FAITHFUL."

170 gr or bigger would be where I'd start. 30 yards is not bad IMO.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.

. I found out when skinning the deer that this 150 gr gelled the whole front quarter it had a entrance hole a about this size of a quarter so I have a good many rounds of this stuff because I got it for 5 bucks a box . The last few Years I had fun taking the SKS out Hunting using some Wolf 122 gr HP. I had picked serval boxes of it up for 5 bucks too . But believe it or not that round dropped them where they stood with one shot . But when your a Round that 25 cents and get a Harvest. Out on my Ridge it's a good Day

Congrats on the deer harvest White Feather!



I will use my 30-30 Handi-rifle this year as well to fill my antlerless tag. I just put a different scope on and bore sighted it in. A quick trip out to the range to zero it and I'm good to go!

Handi Rifles: 35 Whelen, 45-70 UH SS, 22-250 UV, 25-06 UH, 30-30, 7-08, 223, 308 Survivor

I will say I enjoy the Trigger Pull on my Handi 30/30 I still enjoy using a single shot to Hunt with. H&R was my First Gun I ever took deer hunting . My oldest son scored his first Buck with a 410 topper model with a Winchester Slug two years ago I taught him all you need is that one well placed shot . And my youngest son will soon be hunting deer and when he starts It will be on a H&R firearm.
