farthest shot to date

About a week ago i inquired as to how well 168gr matchkings would preform on whitetails. Thanks to Wyowhisper's great advise, I bought a box and was amazed w/ the accuracy-.41" at 100yds & 1.12" at 270yds.
Well, yesterday I took my .300winmag out and made my farthest shot to date, 563yds, I know it's not far for most of you guys but it was for me (2nd farthest- 497yds-.243win 80gr blitzking). The MK went through both shoulders w/ an exit about 2"-perfect!! A massive doe went down like she'd been struck by lightening.

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