In 284 Win/280 Rem rifle MV's the 162 A-Max did great on antelope from 200-1000 yards this past October.

When you say never recovered, do you meen the bullet or the buck?

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
