My daughter Megan Martin took hunter safety class earlier this year after she passed the class her mother and I bought her a .243 Savage bolt action rifle. When I was buying Ammo for our rifles I asked what the best Ammo for my 12yr old daughter to use in her .243. The store clerk told me target practice with what evers the cheapest but only hunt with Hornady Superformance so I bought a box. Megan and I hunted 5 days during regular modern firearm season with no luck. So I told her if she kept her grades up I would take her hunting all four days of late buck season. She currently has 5 A’s and 1 B+ at Chehalis Middle School so she was able to hunt with me Thursday 17th and Friday 18th and miss school. I am very proud to day she shot her first deer Friday the 18th just after 8am Washington’s State GMU 530 (Ryderwood) . It is a 4x4 with eye guards. She took 1 shot at about 80yrd+ I am proud to say thats all it took and I will be buying Hornaby Ammo for all my Rifles.
