Hello to all. I have been lurking around here for a couple years, but figured it was time to get on board. I moved to a rural property last spring which has pushed me to get a few new toys. And I blame a few folks here for the new additions, too. Lol. Picked up a CVA Scout 243 pistol, a CVA Optima V2 pistol, and now ordered a T/C Contender G2 frame, in the last few days/weeks. Let the fun begin. Great site you all have here.

I'm Steve and new to this site. I've been a lurker for a long time. I'm not much of a joiner I guess. I've been hunting and shooting guns all my life. I've shot in IDPA, GSSF, and organized bowling pin matches. I've also hunted small game and varmints with handguns. I decided this year I would go deer hunting with a handgun and now I'm hooked! I killed a doe with my Optima CVA pistol in MZ early season. Then I killed a small buck and a doe in regular gun season with a four inch S&W 44mag.!

Hi all, been lurking around the forums for a while now, thought it was about time to join. I have been hunting and shooting all my life. I have been handgun hunting since the early 2000s. I have taken several whitetail with my SRH 454 7.5" (mostly with the discontinued 260gr Partition, now using 300gr A-frame), several varmints with a Colt Python and countless squirrels/rabbits with a S&W 63. I also have a S&W 29 Classic DX 8 3/8 and a 686+. I have moved south to Florida, looking to get into hog hunting. Probably use that as an excuse to buy a new gun
\:\)
Several options including a Redhawk 45 colt (to try out those long 405gr Garretts), Bisley SBH 480, or the BFR 50jrh. Just trying to decide how practical I want to be.

Welcome to the site!

I used those 405 Garretts in my SBH .454 and they worked pretty well (killed a big water buffalo with that set up).

Thanks for the welcome Max. Actually I need to try those 405gr in my SRH since I already have that. The internet had told me the 1:24 wouldn't stabilize it, until I had read some of your other posts somewhere that it stabilized fine.

I was also under the impression they wouldn't work, so I tried them out and got great accuracy, and terminal goodness.



Truth be told, I don't think they offer anything over the 365 grain loads.
