My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

RDM416,
Beautiful ram, I'm headed your way in November. I hunt in South Arkansas, and I can't wait. People think that I'm crazy for going back home to Arkansas for some good ol' whitetail. I'll never go a November without whitetail hunting.
Good on you,
Brandon

Re: Dall Sheep at 503 yards

Thanks, Michael and duckinalaska,

Michael, I hope you get that ram you are after! That's a pretty good boy on your back from last year too!

Duckinalaska, I agree with you on the Arkansas whitetail hunting. I've been doing my homework here and have been watching a couple of nice bucks in the area. Maybe they will still be around when the season opens!

Great shot!!!!! and good looking Ram. My brother-in- law just bought property in Alaska, so I hope one day I will get to go on a Dall Sheep hunt. Once more, great shot. Wildcat.

Re: Dall Sheep at 503 yards

Congratulations!
Sounds like a great hunt and shot. Got any pics of the rifle? Did you use a bipod or your pack as a rest? Did you get a look at the wound channel the bullet produced?
I have had very good luck with the 225gr Triple shock in my .340wby. I think you'll really like that 210gr bullet. I know a number of guys in Alaska who shoot that 210gr out of their .338Rums.

Re: Dall Sheep at 503 yards

Bowman,

Here is a pic of the rifle. If you look close, the little white dot on the far ridge is another ram at about 350 yards. We spotted this sheep a few days after I took my ram.

I used my pack for a [image][/image] rest. I much prefer that to shooting sticks or a bipod. I tend to be able to keep the butt of the gun more steady that way. Of course, one could use a bipod and place a daypack or jacket under the butt for additional support.

I did not look at the wound channel. I think the 210 TSX is going to be good terminal performing bullet. On the ram, I did not hit even hit a rib going in, so the bullet zipped through pretty quickly. Maybe I'll get a chance to see how they perform on an elk here in a few weeks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
