It sounds like the MAG bullet worked pretty well.
Sounds like we like both like to keep meat damage to a minimum.
I put mine back together yesterday. I added a sling swivel stud AGAIN. This time one with a Nut, and I used a flat washer on the out side. I hogged the inside of the forend out with a drimmel tool, then epoxied the nut in with P7 Epoxy Paste. I think it will stay this time.
I also swapped the factory scope base for an EGW (Evolution Gun Works) Picatinny Base that has lots of slots, and is longet than the factory base. I now have 3 Zee Rings holding the Burris 2-7 Plex Scope, and also have the scope mounted further forward than it was.
Good luck with Deer #2. Now to Optima or to use the 460. I have the same problem. To use the 480 SRH, Contender in 6.5 X 30 JDJ, 35 Bullberry, 357 Maximum, or the Optima.
