    Cheers. For my Begara 45/70 I Cooked up a 400gr Speer jacketed load with trail boss.

    1000fps , gentle on the shoulder and sub minute groups.
    Nice contrast to my 2200fps load.....

    Hope you like neck chops because there looks to be a few. Actually its quite tasty should be quite a bit of steak there as well.

    That was Ol Henry the 45-70, just about took the head right off with no blood shot meat.Through the scope I saw a big glob of red fly out the back and the head snapped back as he dropped.

    " something a little different " is the Biggest understatement i have heard in a very long time @john m

    nothing on Goggle for Llama/Alpacka Hunting or Shooting . . . you Sir are an innovator . . maybe . . only time will tell.
    also couldn't help but notice how many of the critters are on lifestyle blocks on the way home from Wanaka yesterday . . could be opportunities there but not sure how to approach any owners

    i havent done much with the big .45 for awhile . . . cast some of the new 360s & 405s
    the flat point is noticeably wider than the older designs

    ran into accuracy problems with both bullets . . . good out to 75yrds which is a bit limiting but good enough around here to take out for a walk

    shot 6-8 Goats with each bullet . . i was expecting better results than i got, damage was no better than earlier hits with the original 405grn. & definitely less than the 340s,
    why that is i dont know . . . wish i had some balistic gell and a high speed camera to see whats going on.

    I blued the new plastic ones for rust protection

    There is a good chance alpaca farmers will be happy to get rid of surplus bucks how you do it is up to you.
    Taste between beef/sheep mild flavour we ate the hart sliced thin dusted in seasoned flour and fried as part of our meal last night YUM.
    The rest is in the chiller to be butchered next weekend.
