I shot with and against the best shooter in the world and 90% of them will help you be a better shooter . I watch them shoot and if I can pickup just 1 trick they do will make you a better shooter . I love this You Tube and I spend hours watching videos on the top shooter and look for little tricks they have . 1st thing is you need a good accurate gun that fits you . You need the best ammo tailored for the type of shooting you doing . Your grip and trigger control on the gun is super important with a good mental attitude . You must have all that correct before you look down barrel . Sight pic will not win a match for you .

Re Machinist, Ditto on that!

Thanks, it's an '06. 1943. One of 8 or 9 hundred thousand made during the war. Springfield made 4 or 5 million during the war. International Harvester and H&R made a few million after the war.

Still have my 444S.



No shortage of 30-30 lever guns in the house, either, and all are worthy bear guns with the right load.

Love my marlin guide gun 45-70..it's not vintage but it takes the pressures of the modern heavy ammo. The hardest kickin rnd I've ever shot was with a 12 gauge slug. I had an early 3.5 in chambered mossberg and a buddy that worked at federal cartridge he gave me a box of 3.5 in slugs......I took 1 shot and gave the rest back to him. 1 was enough.....I've never shot the big "african" calibers but I bet it wasn't far off

For some reason, I thought that you traded it off and just kept your .444 Contender barrel. The 22" short magazine, pistol gripped rifles are among the best looking, and handling, that Marlin made.

My wife gave me a Mossberg 835 for our first Christmas together in 1990. It is an early factory "camo" gun. I use quotation marks because it probably wouldn't be considered camo today. It has black synthetic furniture and green spots painted on it by what seems to be a rattle spray can. Really amateurish by today's standards but pretty cool at the time. It is still my turkey gun, I do shoot 3 1/2" magnums in it when hunting, either #4 or #5, and although it isn't that noticeable when hunting, the recoil is pretty stiff. You want to wear more than a t-shirt when patterning a new choke. On the plus side, no one ever asks to borrow it.

And my mossberg was the same factory camo yours probably had. Not a patch to the new camo patterns.

I've got a pair of remingtons, 870 super mag and 11-87 super mag that I use now, but I still have the 835. I haven't figured out how to let go like ncg has. That 870 bruises my middle finger during goose season shootin hot BBB 3.5's. The back of the trigger guard beats it up!

I can't let go either. I have guns that I haven't fired in years but I still like them and plan to fire them again some day. Either way, they'll end up being passed on to my son and my nephew. I am an accumulator and not the least bit bothered by it.

When I left Ca and moved to Az I had over 175 personal guns in about 1993 . I had to move from Ca because I had about 10 guns in Ca said was no longer legal to own in there state even I got them legally before they pass the law . Since then I have been selling them off and I only have a small hand full of guns left which are the best of the best . My health keep me from hunting or do any shooting requires movement , so I've been sell them all off over the years . I guess I've owned over 2,000 guns in my life . I would shoot them and only keep the best ones that I liked and performed . That is why the name gun runner then the Az gun runner , Tn gun runner and Tx gun runner was given to me over the last 40 yrs .

Don't know about the Rigby but shoot this in my 45/70 and definately more thump than the Mag Turkey loads. I have not tried the 540gr since I'm not going to Africa.


Garrett's 45-70 +P Hammerhead Ammo



420-gr SuperHardCast gas-checked Hammerhead at 1850-fps*

THIS AMMO IS RECOMMENDED FOR USE ONLY IN THE FOLLOWING MODERN FIREARMS: MARLIN, SHILOH SHARPS, PEDERSOLI SHARPS, ENCORE, NEF, H&R, BROWNING, RUGER, AND WINCHESTER RIFLES. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD THIS AMMO BE FIRED IN ANY TRAPDOOR SPRINGFIELDS OR ANY OTHER FIREARMS NOT LISTED HERE!

Energy: 3200 ft/lbs: Taylor Knockout Value: 51; Meplat: .330;
Chamber Pressure: 35,000-cup; Brinnell Hardness: 25;
Trajectory: +3 @ 100-yds, ZERO @ 160-YDS, -10 @ 225-YDS

*All ballistic specs result from 22 barrels.

Our 420-gr +P Hammerhead Ammo provides extreme impact performance for use against all North American Game and African plains game out to about 225-yards, from 45-70 rifles with barrel lengths of 22 or longer. It is our best all-purpose hunting load for those pursuing big game such as deer, elk, wild boar, black bear and grizzly, especially when long range shooting is anticipated.

This ammunition has been used to take all North American game and many African species including wildebeest, zebra, eland, warthog, nyala, sable, gemsbok, lion and leopard, to name a few. It has truly been tested worldwide and has proven to be extraordinarily lethal.
