I'm especially impressed with the 270 WSM!!!
I didn't realize they had that kind of ballistics capability???
I would expect nothing less with that load and that rifle. With the right driver it is not a problem at all.

For the young lady... outstanding marksmanship! She will be respected at all campfires.

The deer fell over backwards and instantly went to deer heaven.

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.

Welcome from the best assassin the the Liniment sniper league
