It works well, but to be honest I will not own another one. The Holland QD works just as well and is much more streamlined and does not get in the way as the JP does.

Wow, I am impressed that the Holland works as well with a
much better profile.
Nice Buck & a good shot! That exit wound reminds me of that
old song, "Hurts So Good".

Good job Bill. Nice deer. Sorry the bullet failed and the moment had to be over so quickly.

BTW the picture of the gun with the deer simply rocks. That is a cool looking gun.

Thanks 4ked, but I wasn't thinking that after lugging that heavy sucker about 1/2 mile across that wheatfield!!!!!

I should get my 270 AM back this week. I think it will make this gun look like an ugly duckling!!!

Re: Bill and Lerch\'s Buffalo Adventure

Just to keep people updated me and Bj went out this morning and braved the 20mph 9 degree wind chill and tried to get me a trophy buck.

After spotting something odd in the grass at 150yds I thought I might have seen a buck. About 10min later a doe trotted across the grass field about 500yds out from us.

I could tell by the way she was running that a buck was hot on her butt so I scanned behind her only to see the largest buck I have ever seen hot on her trail.

I quickly got into position with the 270AM and BJ fed me a range of 515. I dialed him in and prayed for the buck to stop. He neared our property line and slowed down a little bit just before the fence.

I realized I still had the gun on safety and when I set the gun to fire he was jumping the fence. Probably good I didnt shoot anyway

The buck was a 10 or 12 pointer well over 20" wide with over 12" G-2's.

The whole spectacle was enough to make me cry but we still a couple of days left of season so maybe he will come back out.

Still pisses me off though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

On our way out we saw a group of Coyotes at 200yds and I let the 270AM bark at one. The dog simply melted to the shot and the exit wound looks like you threw a football through him.

As fun as that was I would have much rather done the same to a buck

Well at least now the 270AM has some blood on it.

take it easy
steve
