Hey Guys, I just got back from a Dall sheep hunt in the artic circle of Alaska. I was fortunate enough to come back with a really great ram. 15" bases, 37 1/2" full curl on one side, broomed on the other.
I made a one shot kill at a range of 503 yards. The shot was accross a canyon with only a slight downhill angle of .98 cosine, and negligable wind.
Equipment used: HS Precision .338 RUM, Swaro PH 6-24X X 50 scope, Swaro range finder, Barnes 210grn TSX.
The shot came after two very long days of following this sheep through some rough mountains, and a 6 hour vigil waiting for him to move from his bedding spot. He was bedded at 829 yards. Just a chip shot for some of you guys, but I needed him a little closer to feel comfortable with the shot. I hit him right where I aimed, he went about 20 yards and fell into a ravine [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Made it a bit more difficult to pack out, but I did'nt care!
