Got the shadow out this morning for it's first 50 rounds. I was just fire forming brass, but all indications are this thing is going to hammer!
I went with a 7-35 atacr instead of my beast. At 60 moa cant, I ended up with 35 mils of useable adjustment in the elevation turret after zeroing. Can't wait to get back to Kansas!
The 280 AI brings a lot to the table. Better with the lighter bullets than the old 06. Good sectional density with the 160s and 175s for heavier critters. Easy on brass and your shoulder. A fair amount of cool factor as well.
Nothing that fancy...but 45-70 Govt is my favorite. It just flat out knocks critters down. Fun brush gun, sent this bull cartwheeling.
First round was double lung, second round blew 3" of neckbone out and tossed this 2009 bull like a rag doll. Crappy video shot with an old flip phone. Best viewed in full screen. He was dead before he hit the ground. Used a converted Mauser & Buffalo Bore ammo. Location: Utah near Fishlake.
