Breaking in the FA 44

Description: Been wanting to christen the 44 Mag this season, and was waiting on the right opportunity. I guess he'll do!


Factory 240 Hornady XTP at 14 yards - high shoulder dropped him right there. Recovered bullet under hide after passing through both shoulders.

Thanks guys! Yeah - needless to say I was/am tickled the way it was broken in! Slightly better than a 'dillo, KRal... Wink


I had promised the previous owner that I would break it in proper - he had purchased the gun to handgun hunt, but never had the opportunity - I e-mailed him a pic and told him it punched deer tags as well as it did paper! He was proud...as am I.
