It was the 2010 Kansas youth hunt and on the last evening of the season with only minutes to spare, my 9 yr old daughter Cathleen shot her 1st buck while sitting on my knee in a tripod stand. Not seconds before she passed on a yearling 7pt when this buck appeared to her left. With managed recoil loads and a ported barrel, the .300 Win Mag recoiled more like a .223. The interchangeable barrels allowed us to practice with the .22-.250 to gain confidence and the .300 to dispatch the deer with efficiency. Nice product T/C!
