Mine shoots 100 grain much more accurately than 150 grain. I shoot FFF G because I have plenty. Bought some Blackhorn 209 but never shot it. Read that the hole in the CVA Wolf Magnum needed to be larger. Does anybody know if that is true.
Years ago using cap and ball, I shot a buck and he went right down. Having had a conversation with a friend who had a deer get up and run off, I reloaded. I got down and as I was walking toward the deer it jumped up. I shot it again! The first shot grazed the top of spine.
I bought the Mossberg SA 20 turkey gun Monday. I patterned it Tuesday and it shot well. Kytrapper 2005 you are correct, the weight is 6-1/4 rather than the 5.5 advertised. I will probably hunt with my older 870 SP on occasion as it is a tried and true companion. But the lighter gun felt good.

Used metal tags for many years after I started deer hunting. Looked similar to old rail boxcar seals. Put one on a buck at KY Woodlands (LBL) and when I got home it fell off because it failed to lock. They would have probably thrown me under the jail if they has detected that problem.
Bought a used 20 ga LeFever side by side in 1954 for $40.00. I was twelve. Also have a brick box 500 rds Winchester 22 Longe Rifle Super xx with a price tag of $1.97. I was in mid twenties when I purchased that box.
