Pappy,
You are so right on the shot placement.

I hear that some hunters are using heavy jacketed 223 rounds for taking large game. Of course,shot placement is critical and I presume at close range.

I was going to hunting after voting today but it is raining hard. I usually hunt in light rain drizzle but this is now downpouring.

Wayne,

I bought a box of these and they are exactly what you're talking about. Haven't yet tried them but maybe late season this year.

With all the choices in calibers and bullet weight available now the only bad choice is to NOT bring enough gun, and to not be capable of shooting accurately the gun you bring. There's no reason to not use enough gun. Even my "little" TC .300 Whisper can fire accurately either a 150 gr. NBT or a 220 gr. SP. The only ass shot that should ever be taken is the Texas Heart Shot. Personally took/made only once & the 50 cal 300 gr launched from my TC Hawken entered just below the "eye" & exited between the shoulder blades, clipping the #2 tine on the right side of a pretty nice 10 point rack. Nice memories while watching a down pour.

Rob,

Similar solid copper bullet construction. Glad to see you had positive results.

Does anyone use a Winchester Model 94 30-30 anymore?

Damn Pap you stole my thunder. I was hoping to take this old lady out for a walk in the woods this year.
About four years ago I stopped at a barn sale and got to talking guns and knives with the owner, out comes this '94, serial vintage WW11. Brought it home, took it up the to the range and couldn't hit the paper at 50. Rear sight was all down, don't think it was ever sighted in at all. After a few shots, it's a dandy. What a find and a bargain. On a good day I hope to take it fo a stroll and you never know what happens.
Not very good pictures but all I can do at this time.

I'll add the serial numbers for WW11 guns were just a block of numbers '43-'47. Good records weren't kept during those war years. My gun by the block of numbers was closer to '45-'46.

Follow-up. Interesting rear sight blade. Different profiles for holdovers, IMO.

Interesting, I have a post '64 that I got for cheap, put on a Williams peep sight, and that thing really shoots at 100 yards. Since it isn't a pre 64, I carry it in my Kubota 900 where ever I go around my area, and not worrying about messing up a classic. 150 gr seems to work well and doesn't kick like a 170. Your pre 64 looks amazing and a great get, for sure.

Pap

Recently my close friend was admitted to a nursing home and they took his house and all bank accounts!!

Before the realators got to his house,his daughter and I went there and cleared out all of his valubles.

One of the prizes in his vault was a pre-64 (1956) Winchester 94 virtually unfired.

Let me put it this way,the factory grease was solid in the barrel and the action could not be opened until I put some Kroil on the receiver and let it sit for several hours.

I was able to transfer the gun to another dealer for sale to an acquaintance for just $600. The money then went to my friend's daughter to help pay for the enormous expenses.

I guess you do not come across a find like that very often.

Wayne
