Thanks for having me! as for ADKBEARS friend i'd say if it wasn't the hunter it was the scope i had the same problem a few years back in pennsylvania and missed agood buck cleanly. went back to the rang and the scope was shooting 12" to the right. gunsmith told me it was the older rings on the scope. I changet to better scope rings and killed a doe the following week at 75yds with no problem. I guess we all sag alittle with age. you can still get ammo at wal_mart and anywhere else that fine guns are sold. Honady mow has spearpoint amo tha will not blow uo in the tubular magazine (Supposedly) i checked at DICK"S sporting goods and they had them but at 25.00 I'll stick to my 200gr round.i now live in Kentucky by the way and this saturday starts our gun season. Wish me luck I'm going to need it. Blackbear i hope all this info is helping you make a decision.
