This is what happens when a Blacktail meets a 180gn pro hunter at 200yds with 36gn of IMR 4064 behind it.

 
 
He was facing the other way when i hit him and he was almost perfectly broadside, he moved all of 3' (prolly all do to the cartwheel effect Wink)
 
Oh and I hit him on the second day of Rifle Big smile

Crap now i gotta figure out how i can legally hunt with a Lee Enfield here in Michigan. WE got a 5 round cap for magazines for hunting, But no cap for anything else so you can have as many rounds in your gun as you want, you just cant use it for hunting. I wonder if a plug would work (kinda like a shotgun), im gonna have to get on the horn with the DNR and see if that would be legal.

Also I gotta figure which of my Lee Enfields i would hunt with. I think it's between my savage No.4mk1* or my No.5 Mk1. Irons of course, None of my rifles have scopes on em.

Not sure if it's krectly legal there but there was an old trick where you'd pop the mag spring out, slide either 5 empty cases, or a pre-carved bit o' wood into the shell then re-insert the follower & spring.Lamp

Isnt that the same as using a pencil to limit the number of shells a shotgun can take Shamu?  It sounds like it should be cool, but I guess the key word is "should"  hahaha.  I dont know how legal or illegal it is with hunting rules though.  I hear they can get pretty strict.

Pretty much a "bunny plug" for a box magazine. Check the local regs though as they vary from cross the "T", dot the "I" serious through "Whatever, Dude!"Wink

5 round mags are out there.Tend to be somewhat pricey these days, tho
Here in Canada, we have a similar law. BUT... I found that the M-1 Garand & the Lee Enfield are specifically EXEMPT from the magazine law.
I still only load 5 into the magazine, anyway.(If I cant take it with 5 rounds, I better give up hunting!)
Sold the Garand back to the U.S. Army numbe of years back, so thats no longer an issue, either.
