Any Saddle Hunters on this Handgun Hunting forum. When saddle hunting you go in very light and carrying a handgun instead of a rifle is just another lighter weight option.

Re: Hunting with 10mm Handgun jajwrigh 06/26/2022 7:11 PM
I have a Glock 20 and a Ruger Super Redhawk in 10mm with the 6.5" barrel. I shot a doe a few years ago with the SRH and it dropped her in her tracks. I was using the Underwood 220gr Hardcast loads and I believe the distance was 22 yards.

Re: Dirty Thirty Ernie 06/08/2022 6:21 PM
Sunday afternoon I went out with a couple of guys from church. One needed to do load development and chronographing and the other one wanted me to chronograph a couple of guns with my Labradar. I wanted to do some drop confirmations with the Dirty Thirty/308 Winchester. We had winds from the north west, which was a quartering headwind for us. I was shooting to the north. After the guys got all of their stuff done, Glen spotted for me while I started doing some drop confirmations. The quartering headwind noticeably pushed my bullets down as I extended distances, but I still had fun.
Even at 300 yards it took me more elevation to hit my target, then it shouldíve. By 400 yards I had a sense of how much I should add at 500 yards. At 500 yards my first shot at the 10-inch diamond target was close to a center hit.

The 5-inch square target to the right was hit by a guy shooting a 7mm SAUM rifle with 195 Bergerís.
I did drop confirmations out to 800 yards, but with wind continuing to pick up, I stop there. We shot Glennís 41 magnum Smith & Wesson revolver, and had some fun. I decided I wanted to shoot one more shot with my 308 Winchester XP. I picked the upper right small dot on the big rectangular target at 500 yards.

It always feels good, when you just have a sense of what it should be and you are right, and the shot is very close to where you were aiming at a mid-range distance.

Re: Barnes 110gn Blacktip recovered Mech 8 06/06/2022 7:51 PM
I really wish the Bragging Board was operational as was, but with your detailed description I can see it in my head. It's good to hear those bullets have been working well for you. I worked up a load using the same bullets in my Ruger American Ranch Rifle in 300 BO with velocities a hair over 2400 fps from the 16 inch barrel. I did this so my wife could use it to hunt deer and pigs, but she hasn't connected on either yet, she keeps closing her eye(s). It's good to hear it will work if she ever keeps her eyes open.

Re: Scope choices linebaugh 05/30/2022 10:50 PM
Ernie,
I was hoping that you would catch the post. As I know that you have a lot of experience with these pistols. My striker does indeed have a muzzle break. Up to this point I was shooting 125gr. Ballistic tip Noslerís. But funny that you suggested 155 gr. Because I have 300 on their way to me right now. I did notice that the 125gr. were losing consistent accuracy at this range. Which lead my to believe that a few more grains would help with this.
Thank you for taking the time to get back to me. I really appreciate all your help!!
