    Back in work after 70+ yrs

    After 70+ yrs of resting with my family I put it back in work this morning. 40 yds took out front leg bone, 2 ribs, lungs and bullet came to rest in gut bag.

    Much more damage and blood shot meat than I expected from the weldcore Woodleigh.
    The shoulder has been partly cut away so I could inspect wound channel.

    Velocity is thrilling,but diameter does the real killing.

    John, the elephant you shot seems to be missing its trunk and also be a skinny mutant

    Good work on getting the old girl out for some action

    I thought damage looked minimal compared to typical amax nbt etc at modern velocitys.

    Must have been satisfying to bowl one over with it john :thumbup:

    Well done John. The degree of trauma on that shoulder is probably proportional to your personal elation at the successfulness of the rifle's revival.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Never felt a thing when the right hammer fell and the smile on my face may still be there when I wake up tomorrow.
