Wink Got lucky Today

I went to a small hardware store today to pick out a Case pocketknife to give to a friend at Christmas. While looking around I spotted a dust-covered red box on a bottom shelf. Looking closer, I was happy to find it was a box of Hornady Great Plains .45cal 285gr HBHP muzzle-loader bullets. These are my old CVA rifle's all time favorites! I have tried various sabots, Power-Belts, and Maxi-Balls but nothing groups better from my rifle. The problem is that they were discontinued long ago and my stock has dwindled through target practice and hunting. I was resigned to hunting maybe one more year with my current combination since I opened my last box in October. Now I'm good through the 2018 season! I'm happy since the pure lead HP bullets are devastating on deer and wild hogs.

Nice lucky find there! Nothing beats the smell of burnt black powder in the morning.
