First; my 45-70 was too hard on the scopes I have, so I had to put iron sights on it. Unfortunately, the barrel was not equipped with a hole or dovetail to mount a front sight to; so I had to drill and tap one myself, and it came out great!
I had a chance at 2 more, but I screwed it up. The first was a good sized doe, but she was running and I had never practiced with my rolling tire, so I didn't take the shot. The other was a good sized buck, but I kicked him up twice and could not find him in the scope.
Next time I walk in the woods, I'll have my scope on the lowest power setting, and I'll practice with the rolling tire to see where my lead needs to be.
I still have 2 days to hunt with this, and 3 days with the muzzle-loader... and of course I have bow season for quite a while.
I'm glad to see I can embed videos from YouTube again.
I have been having problems with this rifle and precision for a good long time now, and after a week or so of fiddling around with it, I found that the bore was worn to the point of needing to use bullets of a larger diameter than usual.
The rifling is still strong, it is that the bore was being worn evenly. Totally different than what people were saying happens. Makes me think that rifles that are widely known as "barrel burners" wear differently than these lower pressure and temperature firearms.
You don't need a orchestrated false flag, when the athorities do nothing to curtail those that wish us to do harm; and the news organizations Grant you Fame, while laying blame on the NRA and Constitutionalists.
My local news just reported arresting 4 individuals threatening similar acts, and of course he had a shooter that somehow only killed himself. The schools aren't places of learning, they are trying to creating bed wetting drug induced beta males, or bed wetting drug induced psychopaths!
We are being played by democrats, stop leftist madness!
