Enjoyed the read Ardent.

I too am surprised by the 505 on the penetration test. It would be interesting to know what the 375 does with solids if you ever get the chance.

All the best.

Certainly, on my mind too, I'd like to do the .375 with 300gr abd 350gr solids and see what I get. It will be awhile as all the planks are frozen, -25 up here now and will be below zero for many months yet. We're trying to organise another Wood Bison hunt if my partner and I can buy time from our wives and kids, and I'll be sure to bring something heavy and compare it to his .300 Mag. We'd get close and aim for identical shot placement is the idea, a lot of variables still but it's a start.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
