How Your Guns and Ammunitions Help You in Hunting Deer

Aug 17, 2007
When a hunter go for hunting, it is very important for him that he will carry a gun which will not disturb him in his movement while tracking or stalking the deer.

I found that it was virtually impossible to carry it with one hand or under one arm, due to the location of the clip magazine at the gun's point of balance. This forced me to carry the gun at the ready position which was favorable to fast sighting, but the inconvenience of having both hands occupied with the gun prejudiced me against this particular make of automatic.

After the action has been decided upon, the shooter must decide on the caliber and the ammunition which he should use. Some calibers are made in one standard load, but others have different loads and bullet weights which are to be used for different purposes. Find the one that is best for deer as you will hunt them, and sight in the gun for that cartridge. Remember that if a different load is ever used, the sights must be changed to compensate for the difference in trajectory of the two loads. Trajectory, as defined by Webster, is the curve that a missile describes in moving through the air. When we speak of a straight-shooting gun, we are speaking in relative terms, as no gun will project a bullet in a straight line. The accurate gun will send bullets of the same weight and density, propelled by the same amount of powder, into a target at a fixed distance with consistent regularity.

These bullets follow the same course in a vertical plane unless moved from their path by wind or obstructions. Sights are placed on a gun in such a manner that a line projected from them will intersect the bullet's path and will be in the same vertical plane. In order to intersect the path of the bullet, the sights must be placed at an angle in relation to the bore of the gun, that is, the rear sight must be higher than the front sight so that when the line of sight is level the line of the gun bore is pointed upward.

This causes the line of sight to cross the bullet's path at two points, one quite near the muzzle of the gun and the other at a greater distance. This latter point is the one which we usually use to hit a target. This is generally known as the point of impact. The rear sight should be adjustable vertically in order to change this point. In effect, the changing of this rear sight does not change the line of sight, but it depresses the rear of the gun bore so that the point of impact is placed at a greater distance from the gun. Thus the point of impact may be moved to the extreme range of the gun. Theoretically, a shooter should be able to hit a vertical target at any range which the gun can send a bullet, provided the sights are exactly above the center of the bore.

Before a hunter go for hunting, he must decide on the caliber and the ammunition which he have to use. As some calibers are made in one standard load, but others have different loads and bullet weights which are to be used for different purposes.
