I had my 41 mag and carried a rifle as well. long story but I had to turn in my seat and shoot over my shoulder to get him.

24" inside spread


with the custom 450


showing his tines. He is so wide they look short in the front on pic. I ate the oatmeal creme pie and here he came.

You could have shot him with a grenade launcher, and that would still be an awesome buck!

Thanks fellers. I heard from one of the guys at the processor that it was over 300lbs live weight. We normally weight them and process a lot of them but I was in a hurry. The rifle is a totaly custom 450 that was used to do the load workups for the very first pressure tests in the 450 with bullets over 400 grains. When it was still blued but all other work done Marlin copied it to build the gbl. Quite a rifle. The load used was 300 Sierra JHP over a stiff charge of H4198 for 2150fps. Kills deer like lightning.

A wonderful buck, thank you! What kind of range finder do you use, by the way?

Wow, what a hog! Love leveractions too!!! That is an awesome deer. No doubts about the 300lbs + part either.

That scope must have been a charm. I would be happy to show my collection of scoped, I pay good attention to choosing scopes. I prefer a scope that suits a rifle's size and purpose, rather than a scope that is simply attached with no thought to the hunting rifle/scope as a system. I did my research on many riflescopes and I got to know what is considered what. A low to medium powered scope in the 2.5x and 4x fixed power or 1-3, 1-4, 1.5-5 and 2-7 variable power ranges is all that's needed or wanted and helps to preserve the rifle's inherently fine handling traits.
