Re: Small game hunt.

Thanks gents.
By way of an update I tried .5 of a grain more today in my small game load and it's just about going super sonic. Certainly closer to regulation sighting wise.
No pressure sign yet.

May try a pinch more soon.

Re: Small game hunt.

Fabulous hunting load . . . I'd like to find a plinker load for my 336. Do you think RB might work? I have a #1 buck mold that I could try . . . should be around 45 Gr . . . Hmmm, give it a try. I'd stick to 100gn or more. Many years ago I tried some 80gn bullets but it wasn't very successful.....

Yes they are indeed heavy.
It's probably very easy to remedy with a little stoning away some spring width.

Small game hunt.

Took the 94ae out for a wee hunt today.

Using Speers 100gn plinker and shotgun powder I got three items for the game bag for four shots.
The best shot was a 30yds head shot rabbit.

Gotta love a 30-30.
