I think two years ago on the DCP I got this pair one evening . Shot the first with a Parker GH damascus 16 gauge with handloaded #1 Buck and then immediately shot the second with the 2001 rifle shooting the MM 433-425GC bullet from the mold I got from Mt Sourdough .

And a year or two before that I got this buck with the same rifle using the BRP/RD 432-400GC bullet .

Incidently all three of those deer were killed from the same stand !

The two doe during the DCP season and the buck during the gun season a year or two earlier !

It's okay and I've eaten more then my fair share of the stuff . But each year I kill somewhere between ten and twenty deer , bear in mind we get Damage Control Permits each year . Anyway I usually give everything except the back straps and tenderloin away to others . And each year I have an older friend or two that I give some backstraps . So to answer your question I do enjoy it but a good many other folks enjoy it as well . It's actually an excellent deal for the folks I give it to as I kill it clean it and butcher it package it and then give it to them .

I wish I lived close to you so I could help you dispose of the venison. :lol: Even the poorer cuts make good Bambi-burger or jerky.

Generally everything but the backstraps and tenderloin gets ground . Although some times I cube up the hind quarters as well .

I've had the MM 433-400GC mold for about 8 years maybe more . Knocked one over with the MM 433-375GC several years ago , but each time I took the Ballard rifled 444 out I was either not seeing anything or loaded with a different bullet . Today I finally got the monkey off that bullets back so to speak . I thought it was a medium size doe but it turned out to be a button that appears to be a 1 1/2 year old his nubbins are slightly broken thru . Shot him at 42 yards at 15:45 today after the shot he ran 30-40 yards and rolled up in a ball . Pushed the bullet with I believe 37 grains of RL-7 . Next up for the ballard gun is the LBT 433-400GC also pushed with RL-7 .
