Broke both shoulders, busted one lung and blowed the heart in half.  Small exit wound.



100 yards broadside.  I had to aim below the deer because it is sighted in at 200 yards.



I love this HandiRifle.

day-um. What kind of bullet/load?
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 10:56:19 AM EDT
What round?

I still like the plain old Remington 400gr core-lokts
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 10:58:04 AM EDT
I had a Remington 405 grain softpoint driven to about 1700 fps fail to fully penetrate a 120 pound hog last year. I shot a 185 pound hog this past weekend with a hardcast 350 grain lead bullet with a .45 entry and exit through the shoulders and a surprising amount of bloodshot meat.

What load were you using?

Shooting a deer in the heart is unsportsmanlike.

Meh, at least it wasn't a .22 magnum.

Nothing like a heart shot that breaks the shoulder to knock them right down.



Looks like you nailed the hold over, or should I say hold under.

45-70 is a nasty round.

What's left of a deer's heart after being hit by .45-70. Top is sheared off.

Half the Bison and a staggering number of native Americans would agree.  Posthumously, of course.

Do you have a better picture of whole deer?
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 1:32:25 PM EDT
Uhm, I think you are forgetting something.... Picture of the damn rifle!

Aren't 45-70 bullets quite similar to modern-day 45 cal muzzleloader bullets?
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 1:35:33 PM EDT
I'll post the rifle and deer tomorrow, my baby is about to be home from school and Daddy promised her she could hunt this evening.

Good man!

Very nice.  I have the LeverEvolutions sighted in on my 1895G - used to carry it as a backup/brush gun.  Then I got a SOCOM16 - it upsets the Fudds more.
