Default Opening day!

I'm getting excited/nervous a little. Deer rifle opens Nov1 here in Texas.

I'll be trying to take one with my 300Blackout ARpistol and I just got this camera to mount on it so hopefully I'll get some good video of it too.

My stand is falling over and I could'nt ever get out there to fix it so I'll either be sitting on the ground or in a tree....(the reason I'm a little nervous)

Gun:

Good luck. I've only made it out once so far for bow season. Muzzleloader starts this weekend and I'm working. Hoping to go sit in my stand on Tuesday though.

Thanks, Just to be clear it's a pistol at the moment. Hopefully next season it's an SBR

Do you think the will give enough penetration at the shoulder? I know people that use 22 mags for deer but mostly head shots.

That would make a hell of a wound channel but will it go through bone. I'll look at the box of truth to see if they have tested the 300BO.
