That optima is a good shooting gun! Nice work and that big thick hog of a buck would be numero uno for me! Good luck

Good luck on your hunt preparations.

My 570 Ranger quit on me yesterday also. If it quits raining tomorrow I plan to pull the battery and check it out, clean the posts and charge it. With a little luck that will have it running again.

What load are you shooting in your Optima?

Mine works well with about anything I have tried on the first shot. BuckHorn 209 is by far the cleanest powder, and reloading several times is not a problem with it. It would be better if it were cheaper however. I have been running Harvester sabots and 250 grain Colt 45 Bullets in mine.

Has it been drizzling rain all weekend there too?

I'll be using a load I discovered last year: 80 grains BH209, Harvester Crushed Rib sabot, and Barnes .451" 45 Colt 200 grain XPB. This load produces about 1,550 fps velocity and, if I do my part, sub-2 MOA accuracy.
