    I only have pics,I did not know the rules at the time ( newbie).
    I did measure the hog in the field, 48" around chest, taken under a corn feeder at about 7:30 PM last Friday with TC Contender pistol, 285gr Cast bullet to the shoulder ,dropped like a rock.

    Great chambering. Am familiar with several of the GNR's. And what a great choice of bullet. Looks to be a WFNGC,hardcast. The wide meplate has always worked great for me in every chambering I have owned including 500S&W,45-70,45-90Express,444Marlin,454Casull,44Rem Mag,and 375JDJ.
    Good shootin' --- pruhdlr

    Thanks,
    I have not gotten it yet ? not sure how that works .
    It might have helped if I had taken a picture with the tape but I was the only one hunting.

    it's never too late to put the tape on him. just let me know if you need some help and how much you want it to measure. but fyi... the banners are highly overrated. i hear you can get one with a happy meal
