This is the H&H record for my 360 2 1/4 double:




This is a Wisconsin Whitetail that I shot with it for the DNR when they were testing for CWD. They picked up the head later in the day. Normally I don't hunt at all, but since our land was close to the epicenter of the problem it was necessary to shoot a doe and a buck for testing. In any case the 360 2 1/4 killed both with one shot each.

Wow Joel that looks more like it! Have you posted it here? (My memory says yes but I cannot find it)

The cartridge is certainly ok for deer! As well as monster rifles one must also have a baby one and the .360  2 1/4" is the smallest "real" nitro express as Bill states


Thanks for the posting

Tony,
I am pretty sure I posted this  picture before, but it really still is one of my favorite rifles, so here it is again.
