    Born 1888

    The 7.65x53 and still getting it done 128yrs later. 180gr winchester power point at 2350 fps a slow load that has the same poi as the 150gr at 2700 fps at 100 yds. At the shot her head came up, I thought that it was a miss then she slowly started to lean to the entry side and fell over DRT.

    Old and still doing the business. Reminds me of old Maca and me. Talking of which, did you see that Kirk Douglas celebrated 100 years young today. Inspirational.
