Bisley Hunter appears to be working out nicely. Let us know how the 300 grainers work out in testing.

Rey, you just cost me some money. My local gun shop got one of those Hunter's in, and I just couldn't resist. Trigger is not bad for out of the box, but I'll probably put in a spring kit later. As far as projects go, do we ever catch up? Congrats on some very fine animals and some excellent shooting. I'm glad the Gold Dot is working out for you, and I look forward to more reports soon!

Wow, what an incredible buck! I have a flat top Blackhawk 45 Colt coming. I'll have to give the Speer a try.

TODAY (3/29/30) I GOT TO CHRONY THE 250gr SPEER DEEP CURL/GOLD DOT BULLETS OVER 27grs OF 296 AND FED 155M PRIMERS IN STARLINE CASES, 85 degrees, 4 SHOTS AVERAGED 1,330fps IN THE 7.5 INCH BISLEY HUNTER, ABOUT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING.

BEEN WANTING TO COMPLETE MY BULLET TESTING WITH A SHOULDER SHOT ON A 100lb PLUS HOG, NO LUCK YET, BUT IF THE CV OR SOMETHING ELSE DOESN'T GET ME, IT IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME.

Thanks for the update Rey, I was wondering what that load was running. I kept thinking 1400fps or more, but I guess not. Keep us updated if you get that hog.
