I took an SCI Record Book Javelina with this back in the 1980's. I donated the skull to the SCI Museum in Tucson.

Nice gun and meaningful to boot...

From Rick that I got for a brush hog gun.. I have some Cor-bons for it but want to work up some loads. Plan to get a revolver in 45 as a companion piece for it. I just never thought of a 45 as a 400 yard round and was expecting you to come back with something a little lighter and much faster.

Midrange trajectory about 50 ft. ! lol

A friend and I once walked our .22 LR rifles to impact onto a rock about the size of a small car, in the middle of a water filled shale pit. It was at least a half mile distance. I had my rifle stock under my armpit and was something like 100 yds. over the rock with my muzzle. (Remington 552 Speedmaster) It took a long time for the bullet to get there too. Several one-Mississippi's...

Doug: It was me and Steve Benton at Barnett lake, before they flooded it. After shooting a whole box of shells we walked down there. Took maybe 30 minutes from the top of the dam. When we got there a family with kids was swimming in the SAME hole. There we were, sheepishly carrying our rifles!

The heavier .. but not excessively heavy .. retains momentum

while the light fast bullet loses it very fast.

Thanks Jim

with as much AA1680 as it can hold will run right at 1000 fps from a revolver and is real accurate too.
