Wow glad I did not see this deal a week ago, I was going to trade my Model 70 .300 Win Mag for a Marlin 45/70 but held of because I thought my parents may be getting me the 45/70 single shot I have speaking of......glad I waited because they did!!!
That is a KILLER deal for someone, where is the shop located....might as well post info in the thread, I may still make the drive/trade. Although at his price I would be wanting something more on my end......
you will love it. i've had one since they first came out and it has seen a lot of action. i shoot the rem or win 300 grain HP's in mine with good results. the hornady LE does as well. i started off with the 405 SP and wasn't impressed with them for deer. they go straight through the deer with a little hole, through trees, dirt, etc. probably good for bear though. i shot a deer with one and it went right through the deer and into the ground about 18". i dug it out and it only had a slightly flattened tip. the deer ran about 150 yards. the 300 HP's make a bigger exit wound and the deer don't go far, if at all.
I am using the Hornady leverevolution in mine, 325 grn bullet. The deer I killed this year with it showed incredible results. It took off the top of the heart, I pulled it out of the chest cavity with no effort and the biggest pieces of the lungs were the size of a small orange.
