Favorite deer rifle photo album
#1
Let's see your favorite deer rifle!

I use a circa 1939-1941 Enfield No.4 MK I .303 Brit. for my tree stand gun & a Marlin 336SS for my brush gun. Never got anything yet with the Marlin, but the Enfield has a record of a deer a year so far!

New forum isn't even a week old & you're giving me crap already? What a friend! Tongue

You're just jealous of my old reliable British war horse & his pretty boy brother, Marlin.

This is a photo thread, Where's the image of the pea shooter you use on those skinny little, smaller than a greyhound, rib showing, New Jersey deer you harvest? Smile





(Mods... we know each other so this post is in fun jest, please don't take it the wrong way)

For NJ I use 1187 super mag.

For PA...

A couple different rifles.. want to try this one this year.

I was asking because of the style of the rifle and the stock. I had always been told a stock like that is difficult to shoot and with the age how do you select the ammo?

the fabrication doesn't stop in the shop, that's what the field guys are for.

The wood grain on that is beautiful.

What kind of flint lock?

I thought you were razzing me!  In two years of seeing my deer pics with that gun on fb, you never asked me that LOL

Anyway, I love that gun, it shoots great, not much recoil, & Brit .303SP is $14 a box on sale online or I can handload my own if I want.

Beautiful flintlock!  You are very talented to have made that on your own!
I've had one for going on three seasons but haven't found an opportunity to get out in the field during flintlock season yet.  Yeah I know I can take it out during muzzleloader or rifle seasons but that's when my inline & Enfield come out to play!

.303 Brit Cartridge Information


Looks to be a slow cartridge.

Have you ever compared the ballistics?

Also what made you choose that rifle and caliber?

I am asking because with today's technology there may be better options.
