    I had a good sit opening morning. Hunted an old faithful spot in Adair county to get a meat deer on the ground. I was using a custom TC Contender running an 8" .44 Magnum barrel I made. I just got the barrel finished the week before the opener and a load dialed in right before the opener.

    Sitting in the blind that morning, had three come within 25 yards. The barrel performed as promised and delivered the goods! Now, I can sit back and look for horns! Being a gunsmith and harvesting an animal with your own handywork brings a new level of satisfaction to the game!



    Here's the video of the hunt......

    Congrats. What ended up being the load you went with? Will it change as you shoot more rounds?

    Load was a book load, 23.5gr of H -110 behind a Hornady 240gr XTP. Doubt she'll change any, if at all.
