After 20 yrs of mostly brush gun whitetail hunting in the thick woods of Pennsylvania I have taken on the challenge of handgun hunting. I was introduced to the world of the Contender about 2 years ago after shooting a 14” 30-30. Since that day I decided to build a rig that I consider to be ideal for my hunting style. I went with the following. 1975 receiver, pach grip and forend, and the longest item to find was a 12” barrel with a brake chambered in 7-30 Waters. Topped with a 2x fixed Weaver glass. I reload using a 120 grain Nozzler BT with 34.5 grains of Winchester 748 ball powder. On the bench I can’t believe how incredibly accurate this setup is at 100 yrds......time will tell if I can do my part in the woods!!!
