Wow, another great trip. Just how bad does that 44 tear up a turkey though?

Nice trophies. Seems people have a lot of different opinions on the 240 and 300 XTP's. Looks like they did fine for you. I have had great success using them on big whitetail deer.

Mark, I see your getting 2 1/2" MOA which about the same size group I got with my two 10" FA`s in 41 and 475.. Dick Casull told me how he shot one of his long barrel 454`s against another shooter with a 30-30 lever action at 100 and he outshot the rifle all day... All Freedom`s can shoot but there`s something special about a ten inch barrel...

James, I really like the 10 inch barrel. Someone who can shoot a revolver well could really make this FA shine.
