Well, me and three buddies got skunked in Black Powder season! Saw lots, but mainly does and calves, but some bucks.Ill be using a "Scout" style No4 with a 21" barrel, walnut cheekpiece, cut down 10 round magazine, cammo paint and a 1.5x4 Leupold scope. I had loaded some 168 RN Hornadys with 36 gr H4895 that shoot very well out of this rifle. Where we hunt about 200 yards is the longest shot, most will be within 150 yards. I've never bagged one with this Bubba, so I'm pretty excited!

Pictures of that rifle are on this site. I think I called it "cammoed" something or another. I've searched for it but came up empty. Shamu had been kind enough to post the pics for me.

That's it, although now it has a Luepold 1.5x4 straight tube scope and a shortened OD magazine. Thanks Shamu! I think there was also a full shot of the rifle when we were at the range.
