Yeah I still post, I hunt every Friday nite & Sat, work has me interstate every fortnite some times weekly. Just busy than normal.

I culled my half my gun safe last year and yes I did throw the 500 up for sale, but I acutally dont wont to sell it now :lol: and its been a on a few hunts recently.

Lets just say it cuts a big hole in animals, I almost took it out on a dawn hunt today but the Howa Super lite 308 went instead :thumbsup:

Hey mate, no I'll stick with 44. Was just cruising old threads. I think it would be very hard to feed now if someone doesnt have good stock of pistol powders. it burns 40+ grains a shot

Nice mate, I recall you had a decent supply of 300-MP powder to feed it as well.
