58 Caliber Colerain Gain Twist Barrel

Just got back from my New Mexico mule deer hunt. Couldn't get close enough for a mule deer but made a great shot on a jackrabbit.

Here's a doe that I took with it in Arkansas, 62 yards with a round ball. When I get time Im going to work up a bullet load. This barrel twist will shoot both. With the round ball at 62 yards I hit this doe in the front of the shoulder and it passed through the length of the body, exiting out the back of the ham.

You get around, Mike...

Nice shooting!

I hear the long eared prairie rabbits are like chewing on an old boot!

The 58 just simply Rocks!
I love my Bowling-Ball Hummer.  Have not killed anything with it yet, but that ball really thumps the berm!
