Congrats! Tell us what type performance you got from the FTX bullet (obviously it worked), but .....

I have a similar setup and missed a doe recently. I think my scope may have been touching the rear sight. I had a Simmon 2-6x32 and the optics were poor. I upgraded to a Leupold since Cabela's had them on sale. In mounting I had to take the rear sight off and the larger bell was still hitting the front sight based on the factory ring position. I have a Weigland rail on order so that should fix any issue with height and spacing. It also allows me to re-install the front sight for asthetic reasons. Did you have any issues like this? And does anyone know of a blank to install in the front sight location for SBHHBisley?

Great hunt and good shooting! Were you sitting on the ground or in a deer stand of some type?


I was just ground hunting while using blown down trees and brush for cover.

I had to take off the rear sight to mount my scope and it barely fits behind the front sight but I did manage to get it mounted w/o touching anything it shouldn't.

IA-That's a huge doe.. You did well..

l have the same optics on my SBH Hunter in 41Magnum... l removed
both front AND rear sights.. l like the Bushnell 2-6 because of
its easily adjustable rear focus.
However, l don't like it as well as a Leupold 2X EER on my S&W 629 Light Hunter.

Outstanding. Great story and good shooting. I have one of the Ruger Blackhawk Hunters in 45 LC and my Simmons scope is touching my front sight and I had to run my back site down all of the way and the eye piece sets on it. No problems so far.
I'm shooting 300 grn WFNGC bullets from Beartooth. Shoots great.
I'm taking it this weekend on our antlerless hunt in Oklahoma and then to Kansas to fill my antlerless special hunt tag after the first of the year.
