October Country .69
« on: November 28, 2019, 07:27:55 AM »
Last year I was finally able to get my hands on a October Country .69 caliber. I have been hunting for 20 years with one of their .54 but have really wanting one of their big guns. Loaded with 225 grains of FF it will shoot 2" groups at 100 and is a real hammer on game. I hope to take it to Africa next year.

Dang, Buff, 69 CAL?!  I'd say that'd be a thumper!

Ought to kick like one too! How heavy a ball does that sling?  That sucker should handle about anything on the planet!

"Thumper" does sound like an appropriate Name!

Congratulations
