I shot this ten pointer with a rifle that is over 100 years old. It has a scope on it for longer ranges, but I have always limited myself to 125 yds or less with regular 30-30 ammo, even with a scope. I shot this buck while leaning against a small sappling, something I probably would not do with regular ammo. Your ammo gives me more confidence with these longer ranges. The first shot knocked him down hard. First shot was just a bit off, bad on my part, second shot sent him down even harder. Thanks for an awesome experience with my old lever gun! Lever gun hunting is even more exciting now.
