Well I went back hunting yesterday but there were a bunch of people working right in the crick (creek) to you southern guys & all the deer had moved out of the area.
I did see some but they were wild & running & this country is really open, no trees, just some cover in little draws & some edge cover, makes it tough to get close.
You'll see how open in the photo's plus you'll see one of the places where the antelope run & slide right under the fence, they won't jump a fence, it's pretty rare.
I spotted a group of 7 doe antelope & crawled about 200 yds but they were moving away faster than I could crawl. Thanks goodness for my knee pads, you have to have them if you hunt antelope.
I did bust one big old jackrabbit as he was shaded up under some sagebrush, popped him at 22 yds with the 217 gr HP, it punched his ticket pretty good!

I'd say it was punched pretty good! 357 Maggie?

No, that was a Ruger OM 45 with a 217 gr Maxine Mouth HP running 965 fps. Ran it through the clock today.

...First photo is the 217 gr. Maxine Mouths that are a clone of the Lyman #452190 except for the HP.

Nice looking bullets, but unless I'm mistaken, the 452190 (or 454190) has a rounded flat point profile, no? A 452490 with the gas check portion cut off looks pretty close! Or maybe the 452424.

At any rate, i like the concept for deer and such. Seems to have worked for you in the recent field report!

Sawfish, no but I did have to turn my Dillon seater over or it would have deformed this bullet

The number on my Miha mould is 453490 so I'm not sure what it is, kind of numbered after the old 452190 but looks more like a smaller version of the Keith 452424 to me.
Which ever it is I'm really happy with it. Bought it used on another site a while back & it came with 3 sets of pins.

Looks like it may be what's currently listed as MP 454 - 423 HP PB. 95 Euros with an additional 95 Euro tax for the two cavity mould, if i read the catalog listing correctly!

This thread has me wanting to try these ...

I'd love to get 1000fps out of them in my Smith 69.
