Made My longest Poke on an Antelope Today

Was a pretty good morning for a goat hunt. Cool and crisp, light and steady wind and goats in the morning sun. I snuck to a berm near my range where I shoot often and know the wind currents well. Got dialed in with the wind mostly behind me. Baro 25.88 , temp 42, hum 20%, shoot angle -1* SD, on, CD azmuth 223 latitude 46* all entered into my Applied Ballistice app on my phone. Solution, dial up 31.3, and with a 7:00 wind at 3 mph, dial left 1.8. Two bags under the rear, solid as a rock , check the level , a little preload on the pod. Spotter says he is on it, the doe facing left with the brace post behind her. Yep.... Here we go and the 1lb Jewell broke clean. Where did it go? and then she folded up like she was hit with a hammer. Chambered a second round and got back on her but she never got back up. She was done. The 215 gr Berger had found home.

Longest shot to date on an antelope. 1285 yards ranged with my PLRF10. And if you look at this terrain you know my range finder was on all goat.

Here is the pic.

Excellent job Jeff! Nicely done.

You fellas that are making these cold bore 1 shot kills at beyond the 1000 yd. mark are certainly in a different league than most.

Those PLRF10' are so sweet! They only need to add a jewel trigger to them too.

Are you resting the RF on bags, or do you use a tripod?

Thanks!

Actually that PLRF 10 has a trigger like a Jewell. It fires on release and you will never feel your finger move. It is sweet. I had the RF on bags prone. That goat was pretty small at 1285 through a 6x objective. But with the fine cross hairs in the RF I got 1285 3 times in a row.

Ooh, ok. I didn't realize they fired on release. The one I played with some seemed hard to press the button, but on release would make that unimportant probably.

6X, ok. That was the other thing I wondered. The optics looked very clear in the one I'd seen, but didn't know the power.

How often would you say you practice at distances of 1000 yds and over?

Thanks for the info
