It has been a while since I sold my Contenders and Encores and concentrated on revolvers but it appears I have jumped back into the single shot pistol game with both feet and forgot how deep the water was! I think I have most things covered from deer to Elephants with my recent acquisitions. I have an Eabco BF falling block pistol in 6.5 BRM (.30-30 necked to 6.5mm and improved) which has been used on deer to Elk, a T/C contender frame with a 12” Gary Reeder barrel in .257 Raptor (.204 necked up to .257) which is primarily a deer and varmint round and for the big stuff a 14” T/C Custom Shop barrel in .375 JDJ. All three have or will have a 2x6 powered scope on them. I am looking at maybe also getting a .223 barrel from SSK with a 1:7 twist since they have a stainless 14” barrel with mounts in stock which makes it around $300 cheaper than a custom barrel. Should I grab the .223 or just use light bullets in the .257 Raptor?
