Re: Handgun bullets???

I do. Shot today with those dirt cheap plastic jackets. I used Nosler 200 grain HP's in 44 caliber. I had them for a 44 mag that I loaded for.

Shot it today for the first time in about 4 years (not hunting with it, just shooting). Shot the best group I ever fired out of that gun. An honust 2" group at 50 yards.

Cabelas hawken rifle, 75 grains FFF.

I keep thinking about getting a muzzy stamp, but just can't bring myself to it. I already got two deer this year, and I'm one of the ones complaining about no deer.

No responce required on the deer part. It won't happen again.
