2nd Annual 307 Speed Goat Hunt ... 6.5 SAUM Style

Our 2nd annual Wyoming speed goat hunt was a lot of fun and successful for all !

Pat, George and Francis all got great bucks and we had a lot of fun on the hunt.

First day out, my son, Tyler, and Cinch came along for extra eyes and help hauling critters in the mud. George and Francis tagged bucks the first day and Pat on the morning of the second day. The 6.5 SAUM's really performed incredible shooting the 130 Bergers and the 139 Scenars.

I saw you said 139 grain lapua scenars. How did they perform on game. I am curious because I shoot them out of my 260 comp gun and was wanting to maybe bring it on a long range antelope and deer hunt next year in Wyoming. Curious how they performed. Thanks. By the way congrats on the hunt. Looks like u guys had fun.

Thanks for sharing.

I've been following the 6.5 SAUM thread on the Hide for quite some time and you guys are killing me! I am very impressed with how that gun/cartridge turned out and agree that it may be about the perfect gun, especially for what I do! In fact I re-read the whole 6.5 SAUM thread last night just to tempt myself and put myself through extreme amounts of pain! I want one, I need one, I gotta have one!

Glad to see the great on game reports. Would also love to see and hear reports of the specifics of the on game performance with the bullets you guys used.

Both bullets used performed great. Golf ball sized exit holes.

It was a great hunt and the 6.5 proved itself with ease

It is just stupid accurate and a true wind cheater !

I thought I had asked this when you first posted the rifle but why the SAUM and not the WSM?
