Very nice Zee. Looking forward to seeing what it will do with stouter loads, though the load you tested would take any critter I hunt for.

I?m kind of excited. My buddy has already timed and installed the baffle brake. I told him not to worry about turning the brake down to the diameter of the barrel. Just index and spin a finish on the brake.

He doesn?t have a bead blast machine. So, it won?t look like the MGM installed brake, but should be functional. That?s all I really need it to be.

I?ll pick it up from him after Christmas.

I actually laughed when I fired the first test load with TB. It was such a mouse fart that I couldn?t believe how enjoyable it was to shoot.

Honestly, I think I can get this to be my boy?s first hunting handgun. The round will kill any deer we shoot and the recoil is so minimal, I think he could pull it off at 11 years old. Only problem is reaching the trigger.

Yup. Hand size is my sons limiting factor right now.

I?m a Carney. And my boy, at his age, is even more challenged in the mandible aspect. So, finding a handgun that fits his hand is damn near impossible.

Anxiously awaiting your thorough autopsy results...a 440 even at that speed is gonna keep on trucking through anything it encounters.

My friend has the baffle brake mounted already. Just gotta pick it up and work up a full bore load with the 440s now.

Should be quite a different experience from the mouse fart loads.
