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.
