Re: finally

My wife and I go through 6 to 7 deer every year and have for 31 years. Got a 14" 30-30AI barrel for my Contender this deer season. 125 gr Nosler BT 2670 fps = DRT deer. Shot 4 with it 3 DRT one took three jumps because I hit him a touch lower on the front shoulder than I wanted to before he piled up dead with a heart blown to bits.

Re: finally

and here I thought we were strange in the amount of venison we go through in a year. Glad to know there are others like us out there. I hunt four different pieces of land they consis of two private farms I have permission, one lease of 2800 acres and then fort stewart around 98000 acres I think. I try to spread the deer we require over the four different areas each year. Glad to know we are not alone.

Re: finally

Nice… the 30-30AI is a great cartridge; I know a guy that has a TC with a SS 14” and it’s an awesome shooter. I just wish we could use them for hunting in the land of way to many ludicrous laws here in Illinois. Has to be a straight wall here so I chose the 460 for deer which I haven’t regretted buying. Taken 13 with this one so far and haven’t had to track one of them… I get such a kick out of this thing.

Re: finally

i also have a contender super 14 in 357 herrett. love that thing it hits like a freight train. i just love the nostalgia of the revolver so that is what I have been carrying lately. The contender shoots MUCH smaller groups about .676 ctc. at 100 yds........but there is just something about the revolver that makes it different. I guess it has that "old school" feel.
