My deer seem to like to stand still only when their rump is turned toward me.

I shot my 300 ultra with a holland ONCE, and I would never do it again. I pulled the trigger, boom, it was so loud I got dizzy and light-headed. Not to even mention the ringing that lasted for days.

When I shot my buds 300, other than the days long ringing, yes, exactly. I felt just like I should have had a nose bleed from the resulting pressure. Definately a one time memory etching process.
I haven't done the .270 AM yet and hopefully won't be forced to. Just haven't seen anything that is really worth shooting at that badly, to repeat the experience.
Regarding the ear protection, you might want to look at a pair of the North Sonic II ear valves (used to be called Lee Sonic). These are about the same size as the foam ear plugs but you can hear about 90% of normal when wearing them. They have a small spring loaded diaphram inside them and the pressure wave closes that diaphram when you fire. One pair will last you for years of hunting - they come in a small blue case that is easy to carry.
Thanks for the reminder on the Lee's. I had/have some someplace. All I can find is the small blue plastic case [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
