Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?
After a really bad bullet failure 4 years ago, I think that I might prefer a belt fed magazine. Realistically, my box magazine was probably an advantage over detachable in that case, as I had to reload twice (single rounds) after emptying the gun. I did get the deer and he was a genuine trophy class for the area where I hunt. I managed 6 shots in the time this buck crossed my stand twice, hitting him 4 of the 6 with well placed shots. The bullets fragmented and did not penetrate, although I did knock him flat with 3 of the hits. Incident has made me a believer is solidly constructed bullets.
