We used a 142 grain SMK out of the 260. It was a pass through with about a 2" exit hole. It was the first game we have taken with that bullet and I was impressed.

    Re: 12 Year Old's First Wyoming Trip

    Gotta tell ya guys, Jared did a wonderful job out here his first time hunting the wide open Wyoming plains. In 30 yrs of guiding deer and antelope hunters in Wyoming, I've personally never seen a Fully Velveted mature buck after the 1st of October......definately a once in a lifetime oportunity and nice trophy.

    He did his homework, Brian and he practiced during the summer from field positions and on getting quick target aquisition.

    He also made the 500 yd club on a prarie dog with a 223. Oh, almost forgot; he did some really fine shootin on steel plates at 600 and 700 yds with the 260 too.

    Congratulations Jarad.

    Signed, Redneck Ninja
