Greetings to all!,

  I’m new to the group and a relatively new lever action shooter. I was wondering if there are any 405 hunters out there?

 

Cheers,

Yes…but maybe not so many using them for whitetails.  (Much better idea, however, than using a .32-20, which I’ve heard many say is good enough for deer.)

.405…It will kill the deer.

Find a BIG ONE!

Yes it will!  I prefer the “game” to drop in its tracks.  I took a nice buck with my 45-75 and he dropped in his tracks.

Cheers,

I think it would make a great hog gun. Sometimes they take a lot of killing. Wink
