Congrats, if I ever pry my .257 out of my neighbors hands I may use it on deer also. He loves it and says if he would ever miss something or put a bad shot on a deer it would be his fault not the rifle. He says its a laser. Considering he is Amish itís funny hearing him say itís like a laser.

I have a both also. My neighbor uses my Vanguard and he loves it. I have shot some really small groups with it too. It isnít picky on what you put in it either. When I started handloading for it I had a hard time finding what shot good because all of the loads for it shot really good. I settled on loads that are pretty warm just because. Vanguard rifles are a real good rifle.

That loads that I used with the Great Plains bullet ainít for recoil shy people. I actually recovered one bullet and it was the size of a Quarter. That deer was actually small which surprised me when I recovered the bullet. They create a lot of knock down power.

Chris: Have you ever tried Buffalo bullets in your TC .54 ?

I have got it done a couple times with the Great Plains bullet which is 425 grains and pushed it with 120 grains of FFFg Goex and then 100 grains of FFFg Goex Ole Eyesford which seems to burn hotter.
Do they even make the Buffalo bullets anymore?

Very sorry to hear this. I would keep the boat.

Saw a few deer but no shot. Since I have roundballs loaded I donít want to shoot too far out. One was prolly close enough but just didnít have a good shot.

Had basketball yesterday. Got today and got ot two days and back on rotation for four days.
Got th TC and round ball out. .54 caliber by the way and 100 grains of powder.

Good to hear you could get someone young out into the outdoors. My girls are all wrapped up in basketball and dang it....boys...urrrr
Maybe next year you should invite the boyfriends hunting and then your daughters might change there mind.

I am still not cool with boyfriends yet. But they have seen some of my guns😉

I would of liked it if the girls hunted with me but they couldnít find the time.
Have enough meat to share with the boys and get to give a pack or two too a guy at work also.
Vacation is done now and back to the grindstone starting today.
