Thanks everyone for all the nice comments, it?s a ball to shoot. It will see action in a few weeks, plan to start out with it for Indiana?s deer opener.

That's a definite beast. Looks like it can double as a club for when they get really close.

buck, I know the STA is a big cartridge that`s been around for a long time and to be shooting it out of a handgun and get the groups you did deserves a well earned "good for you"...

I used the old Speer 250 gr. Hot Cor in my .35 Whelen Improved on Colorado Elk for a number of years, and never recovered a slug. More recently I have been using the 250 and 225 gr Nosler Partitions for bear and large Blacktails. Average retained weight is 67%.
