Dean, love the quote " giggle like a little girl". I'm glad to hear that another one bit the dirt for ya, and also, that you used a 162 A-Max. One of mine shoots them like a lazer, but I've been hesitant to try them on game. I have gotten mixed reports as to what they do on the terminal end. But, boy do they shoot!!!! And I've heard the phrase, man " I'm getting one of these , but ASAP" many times, especially at the range. But, in the final analalysis, the shot your buddy made was with your gun, and your load development. But Kudos on the trigger man too!!
For future experiments, what was you load, and velocity, just curious. Take care Dean, and Happy Turkey Day.
