Near the end of our very long hunting season in Idaho I had a second white-tailed deer tag and decided to hunt with my Hawkins .54 cal smoke pole, charged with 120 grains of loose Hodgdon Triple 7 powder, and packed in with a sabbot wrapped around a Hornady .452 XTP 250 grain bullet. Very confident, I layed a round out at 227 yards measured with my Bushnell rangefinder. The Hornady bullet hit its mark, and I had jerky for the winter:)))) What a bullet for accuracy:))))
