Well we went Damage Control Hunting again this saturday evening !
Shot the first one at about 19:14 at 65 yards was using one of my circa 1972 Marlin 444T's with a Marlin 1 3/4-5x scope on top . Was shooting the Ranch Dog 432-240GC bullet I had cast from straight wheelweights and pushed with 52 grains of H322 . Deer went maybe 12 yards and toppled over !
I set the 444 down and picked up my Ruger #1B 300 Win Mag and shot at another one that had gone a bit from the first but was still only 75 yards . This rifle has a Bushnell 3200 3-9 on top and is shooting the Hornady 165 SST pushed with 78 grains RL-22 and it dropped right where it was standing !
Monday I'll cart along another unblooded 444 shooting the Lyman 429244 HP bullet and my Ruger #1B 338 Win Mag shooting the Hornady 225 SST !
