Re: 15 year old niece's 570 yard deer.

It's funny because she's kind of a jokester and no one believes her on the distance.
She used a Tikka T3 lite 270 wsm, Hornady 150 grain SST's, a Bushnell yardage pro laser rangefinding scope, Harris long bipod with my backpack as the rear rest. She's not quite 5 feet and weighs right around 100lbs. The recoil didn't bother her a bit. She now calls herself the best assassin in the Jr. Sniper League.
Thanks everyone. We learned all we know about long range shooting on this site.
That is quite a shot. We can now welcome another LR shooter to the fold. The more we have the better we like.
