Re: Edge over kill for KS white tail

I just killed a 130lb. east coast whitetail with my edge at 450 yards, 300 SMK at 2825. Hit 3" behind shoulder perfect elevation entrance broke single rib exit hole size of pool ball just touching 1 lung. Deer ran 30 yards was really impressed where i hit the damage was good and dead is dead. Really like to smack one dead in the shoulder to really see some damage.

Why? That would be a lot of wasted meat!

Coming from a state where all deer licenses are a draw that seems like borderline "wanton waste" to me. If you just want to blow giant holes in critters I recommend taking up hog hunting.

Re: Edge over kill for KS white tail

We eat ours , I built this Edge to take Elk huntin sometime but curiousity got the better of me so decide to use it this deer season and was really expecting a quick clean kill and that is exactly what didn't happen . I shot a doe on Sunday with a 6.5 x47 i just finished at 415 yds and she didnt run 30 yds and died , but i did hit the corner of the shoulder and very good exspansion out of the 130 gr hunting vld.

These are my first 2 rifle builds at least i got a kill out of both them .

Re: Edge over kill for KS white tail

Okey, leave me clarify my comment before i look like a real jackass. I built an edge this to take to co. elk hunting. on the last day of my hunt my outfitter found out my nfx scope has an illuminated reticle. he told me it was illegal and i argued it wasent and had to go with my back up gun which was also a new build my 25 Bobcat ( 270 wsm necked to 25 ) it was topped also with a nfx 5.5x22 npr-1 but he didnt know a nfx from a tasco so i wasent going to tell. i took my first elk that morning a nice cow at 470 yards. I was excited about my first elk but dissapointed it wasent with the edge, i think everyone here knows what i have invested in it plus carring a 13 lb. gun for 4 days at 8200'. So now back home in our local season i get to kill one of our whitetails that went around 125 lbs if im lucky with the edge. Yes i wanted to see what 4 damage it would do on something small like this and yes hoping for a nice hole. as far as deer meat which i should of went on i dont care for deer steak or berger. However, i do make my own bologna, sausage, and jerky. Also i give my family some steaks they enjoy but i dont. So i just dont go out and try to blow holes in deer and let lay, i bring home and do my process as described. We was able to take 4 elk 2 bulls and 2 cows, 2 mule deer among a group of 10. We divide equal shares so i had fair amount of elk meat which i do like elk steak.

So why didn't you get a clean kill with the Edge? What happened with that deer? By the way, I love Kansas. I lived on Ft. Riley for 2.5yrs. I was stationed in the 4/1 FA. I got out and visited many different towns. My favorite spots were Remington's in Topeka, Rocking Horse just north of OK City, Abilene, Silverado's in Manhattan, and I was baptized in a swimming pool during a tornado watch in Enterprise. I really like the XX Angus at the Little Apple Brewery too.
