    Obviously that deer has not kept up on the latest gun rag ads or it would still be running and laughing at you for using "old technology" ammo!

    The deer I dropped a few years back with a minnie ball didn't know it was a 150-yr-old bullet design either.

    Archer, they're in full rut just across the NC border, central portion of the state. And my neighbor got the big boy I've been looking for a couples of nights ago while I was 500 miles away. Least it wasn't a road hunter.

    Glockman....self defense I assume? Why not pepper spray? Sheez. Seems excessive.

    Nice work. Wish I could pull that one off. But hey, I have a buddy who took his daughter out last year for her first hunt. She got a doe, it went down and he went to get the 4 wheeler. When he got back his daughter was jumping all over the place. Neither of them saw the small buck behind the doe. She'd dropped them both on the spot, one shot. True story.

    Ha! That is great! I will take that as evidence enough of the potential of that round. 15 yards, was he on your back porch?

    That's what I have in my G23 right now. I manage recoil really well with this combination. Honestly, I didn't know it was considered out dated technology.

    It works for me so i'll keep using it.

    So much for outdated ammo and a short & weak cartridge

    I can't think of a better way to test bullet performance than hunting. Who needs gelatin when you have muscle and bone?
