Opening day of ML, I was in the swamp and caught him 70 yards out, slipping through at 7:30 AM.
Using a 260 grain PRbullit Extreme Elite on 90 grains of Blackhorn and a MU plug.
Shot straight through the heart.
This Gun handles like a dream, the 20" barrel is perfect, and the short TH stock with the rubber check pad is a seamless fit when I throw the gun up.
I was worried about the barrel after cutting it, but it grouped 3" at 100 yards and I am NOT a good shooter
Few years back I was shooting Extreme elites in 330 and 360 grain on 90 grain Pyrodex RS with golf ball sized exit woulds and A LOT of blood.
I switched to Keith Nose 2 years ago and they are devistaing, no exit, but the deer never went more than 10-30 yards.
Since this is my "kids" gun, they are going to practice with 175 grain and hunt with the 240 or 260 Elites, the 260 Elites are not opening up as much as I would like with 90 grains of BlackHorn at typ distance (20-60 yards), I will adjust the powder down and see if that helps.
Shot 2 small does Friday night.
Love this gun,
I am going to make a few more (3 kids)
