Tennessee's muzzleloader season starts November 4th, and I'll be packing a CVA Optima pistol loaded with Blackhorn 209 and 200 grain Barnes XPBs. Two weeks later - on the 18th - during the regular season, my primary handgun will be my 14" S&W Model 460 loaded with 275 grain Barnes XPBs, with a 41 Magnum Blackhawk loaded with 250 Cast Performance WFLGC bullets on my belt. If extenuating circumstances arise and I absolutely need to put a deer on the ground, I'll break out the 300 Win Mag Encore.
Goals for this season in order of preference:
1. Bloody the 460.
2. Bloody the Optima.
3. Bloody the 41.
4. 200+ yard shot with my 300 Encore.
