SBH 7 & 1/2" WITH A Tasco red dot, really a Tasco. Old thing is tuff. Had it on a 10 gauge NEF turkey gun at one time. Need to drag out my Security Six and kill something with it.

Going to start with an Encore with 15" 338winmag barrel for my stands with a potential long range shot. For the short range stands it's going to be a Contender with a 15.75" 41GNR#2 barrel.

These new Pachmayr grips should help on the recoil a good bit versus the stock walnut grips I just replaced.
Worked out very well Saturday morning. I have owned that pistol for 31 years and finally drew blood with it. Lung shot went clear through. 7 pointer with not very impressive antler growth. Good for behind my house though.

Iron sights at about 25 to 30 yards.

Default S&w 629

My S&W 5" 629 Classic. Wanted to try the Dan Wesson 10mm Silverback but just felt more comfortable with the 44 Magnum...
and it worked.

Got a kill with the Contender .357mag. Swapping to the 7mm TCU barrel with my own cast boolits now. Hope to take one with it also.

Are you nuts? I don't even like shooting it in a rifle. Developing loads and sighting in has to be brutal. I have a .270 barrel and a 7mm-08 also that are more than capable of the long range shots, I don't need that kind of punishment.

Be sure to post some pics when you get one.

Lol. I've been called that before. Actually it's not as bad as it sounds. In my avatar that's me shooting the 338 left handed and I'm right handed. Had a brace on my right wrist so had to shoot left handed. Not a gun for inexperienced shooters but if you can handle full magnum 44s you can handle the 338. Been using it since early 2000s. Taken several deer with it. I thought it was time to take it out of semi retirement and let it hunt again. Last few years have been using 7-30 improved Contender, 7-08 Encore, and 45-70 Contender all handguns of course.

I had a 460 barrel in the encore, it was brutal, couldn't get it to shoot like I wanted so I sold it. Now have a 454 taurus, and it is no fun developing loads for either. It is worse than my 15" 270.

Now, the 7-30 and 7tcu are quite enjoyable shooting. Just plain fun.
