    Hot dog !

    My middle son took this one off the same stand as the first one . [​IMG]

    145 yds. and he admits to jerking the trigger ( when I asked him why it was spine shot and in the middle of the back at that /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif ) The nosler 140 ballistic tip out his .270 shoots fine for a factory stick ( Rem . mountain rifle )

    We had this buck on the same trail camera, will try to get it hosted right away .

    Season is starting out with a bang /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    You better have several freezer's if you are going to shoot that many deer.

    I see your wife makes him get a haircut.

    Congrats!

    On a side note, what load are you using with the 140s in the .270? My rifle seems to only shoot this weight accurately, and I was wondering about your load data. Thanks.

    Bob ,

    You know , it's amazing how little room a whitetail takes up when deboned . With two in the ( average size chest type) freezer at this point it appears that I can easily put 3 or 4 more no prob /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif and will still have room for the mustard greens and corn that my wife and I put up this fall along with the assorted tv dinners , turkeys ( wild ) catfish ( wild) hogs ( wild ) and the occasional beef steak or two /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    See , you won't starve here !

    Thing is that my household alone ( two sons still at home) can legally take 12 whitetails this season. Thats 2 bucks and two does each /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif We usually put 3 or four in the freezer then hunt for the good ol big un , or is that the big ol goodun /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif We grind a coupla of them up entirely , ceptin the tenderloin that is /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Using big Hobart commercial griders makes some great burger/spaghetti /sausage /chili etc.meat.

    Jared ( my middle son ) prefers his hair short and is always on me to get a hair cut /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif So....when you come to hunt with us Bob , you and Jared can do your dangdest to convert me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif.

    In his service , Jim Brown

    Stephen,

    Sorry guy, It should have read 130 nosler ballistic tips /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif The load is 55 grs. of IMR 4350 , taken right out of the manual. I have not had time to develp a load for this rifle as i've been too busy on my custom guns /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif On the other hand this combo shoots more than adequate for this rigs purpose, 1" to 1.5 @ 100. Until he ( my middle son ) gets serious about long range shooting I will probably just leave it where it is . Since he is in his first year of Pharmacy school that may be a while .

    Once again , sorry for the mistake ! Jim Brown
