Anyone play with one of these? I just got one. Very fun gun. Plan to shoot varmints and maybe some small piggys if i they come out in the food plot. All else with cast bullets it is sure to be extremely fun.

I shot a friends years ago. What I remembered the most was it was VERY load. Needed plugs and muffs. Not a lot of power, so your plan should work fine.

As Doc said...plugs and muffs are standard.
I have taken a couple of deer with jacketed soft point bullets and it worked. However I wasn't particularly impressed with it, but for varmints it is flat shooting round and should be a lot of fun.
PS... touch a round off at night.

kirk,

Love mine. Similar to the 327 Fed Mag, predates by about 70 yrs.. Great varmint rig, never thought of using it on larger game.

I've owned several & all of them have been very accurate. They shoot flat & rock chucks hate them. If it's a new model you can easily shoot 32/20's in it & not have to worry about the head space problem associated with the rimless 30 Carbine. I just use .313" bullets in mine with great accuracy, both cast & jacketed.

I shot one that was chopped down to 5 inches. I think it synged my beard. They are loud and fun, but I would prefer a much longer barrel.

Why do I carry 10mm? Cause shooting twice is just silly.

If you don't carry in condition 1, you don't carry a gun, you carry a bullet holder.

I bet that 5" was a screamer. I plan to go shoot it this weekend. Looking forward to it. Will post a pic of it later.
