    43b Bighorn sheep

    Looks like the north end of 43B. Nice ram and congratulations to your friend.
  7. Extreme long range shooting has not been good for the sport. My opinion. Too many hunters believe they can do it because they believe the hype. Lots of wounded animals never recovered. What has happened to the idea of getting as close as possible to make an ethical shot? That is the spirit of hunting. Again, my opinion. Bill V

    Powder Vs. Pellets

    If your son is shooting a 54 cal Knight, there is a 95% chance it is a plunger type. Therefor, he will need a conversion to shotgun 209 primers in order to ignite Blackhorn 209. New hammer assembly and breech plug. Last year I used a Barnes 275 grain on my elk DRT. I have chronoed that bullet with two 60 grain pellets at 1800fps. Pellets are easiest, loose is easier to find the accuracy sweet spot. Bill V
  9. I have a full box of the Pyrodex 54/60 grain pellets. Your son can have them for the $25 I paid. I am in Phoenix also. PM me if he is interested. Bill V

    2015 Rams

    If any 2015 Sheep hunters have their Taxidermy work back yet I bet there would be some interest in seeing the finished trophies. I sure would like to see them! Thanks, Bill V
