I haven't shot it yet. I shoot 165 grain hornady Interlocks for hunting. My pet load for my Browning A-Bolt II Boss rifle uses 39.grains of IMR 3031 with the 165's. On some days It will shoot a ragged hole at 100 yrds. My first "do all" bolt action rifle was a 243 win. I never missed a deer with that rifle. I don't know how many deer I shot with that rifle but the last deer I shot I put four well placed shots on it. One quartering in shot in the pocket and three broadside shots as it was trotting down through the woods. No pass throughs. The first shot planted it it but it jumped up and started running. The first shot would have been enough but, well you know, how it goes. When I skun that deer I couldn't get over where I was finding pieces of the bullets. Slow things down to moderate velocities with a good bonded bullet and I get real nice pass throughs. No more deflections off rib bones. I would never argue that the 243 win isn't a good deer caliber, because like I said I shot a chit load of deer with mine. I stay away from the shoulders, but still had a broadside shot that deflected and broke the spine. When I decided to buy the Henry Single Shot, the caliber choice was a no brainer for me.

our long time load for our BLR uses 47 g of IMR 4320 pushing 150 gr Nosler Ballistic Tips has proven to be very versatile .... it serves as an extremely accurate range round and performs really well on white tails .... for boar and bear we use the same charge pushing 150 g Nosler Accubond bullets .... historically for deeper penetration we use the same load with Nolser 150 g Partitions .... Nosler has come out with E-tips that I'd someday really enjoy loading for even deeper penetration

Welcome from Colorado. 308 is one of my favorites along with 243. I have a 357 Single shot and am looking at getting another as I really like the SS.

Good evening BigAl52, Thank you for the welcome. I posted a call for help on the single shot rifle discussion page. I tried to buy the Grainger spring to make the modification on my 308. They said the part # was not available anymore. I took the small spring out and it helped but i'm guessing I'd be better off with the recommended fix. Word on the street is you may know where I can buy one. HELP !!
