I just learned that once again I got drawn for a Sept western Kansas muzzleloader deer hunt.  I get both a buck and a doe permit.  I have missed a nice buck each year for three years and plan on bringing back a nice buck this year.  I plan on shooting out to 150 yds so I know where it is hitting .  I have found that out west the distances tend to be a bit longer than they are here in the east.

Clean yer specs, Paul and giterdun. Around here, shots are loooong. If I had to rely on a front stuffer on a stubble field I'd starve to death. Hope that you manage to get one this fall.

With the wife falling and spraining her ankle really bad about three weeks ago my time has not been my own.  Plus I still have wood to be cut, split and stacked.  Also with turkey season in its last week and rain predicted for the next several days I am not getting anything done.

Have you ever tried the 40 caliber 200 grain Shockwave?  They come in a blue sabot and are meant for long range shooting.  I know they sound light in weight but everyone that has used them swear they are devastating on deer.  Also I find them extremely accurate at long ranges.  Some others to look at might be the new bloodline bullets from Knight.  Get a lighter bloodline to help shoot a flatter trajectory.

 

I know what its like with lots of work and reasons not to do it.  My knee I think is ready for replacement and its been killing me to do about anything.  I will be planting gardens this week and so that will be about it.  Good luck on your deer hunt.  The main this is pick a good powder and then practice.  Have you ever shot Triple Seven 2f powder?  I find it shoots well with sabots.

Thanks  for the info.  I do have some 240 gr XTPs that shot pretty well for me.  Lots of possibilities so little time.
