    I was so close to buying this on trade me, kept low balling HnF but they weren't interested, would be a bloody good step up from the 300blk

    Bottom pic is 444 next to 30-30 cast.
    Hornady standard length brass loaded with a light 240 grain projectile. Was planning to load it with LEE 310grs as there is plenty of space in the mag and I thought it would be fun.
    Its not a micro grooved barrel.

    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.

    Ballistics are better than a 30-30
