I haven't hunted with a long gun for 8yrs now...it's all pistol for me.
My Contender and Encore pistols are more than capable.
Here's my 7-30 Waters:
This Lope doe was @ 350 yds.
This is my 6.5x284
Here's the 223 @ 250yds
Here's the 256 Win Mag @ 110yds
Here's a small group picture...I have barrels that aren't shown
This was my first group with the 6BR@ 100yds...I don't think I'm changing this load
So yes, they are more than capable.
And I'm not even that good...wait till Ernie posts some pics of his accomplishments!!!!
