Finally Broke into the 700 Yard Club

Went out hunting this afternoon and was able to take a shot at a whitetail right before dark standing right by my 700 yard steel gong frame. Up until today I had only shot at steel at 700yrds. It was my first attempt on live game at this distance. I'm proud of my rem 700 7mm rem mag. Also, love the 160 gr accubonds. The Kenton turret that I put on my Leupold VX3 4.5X14X40 Works great! As accurate as you can hold it. Here's the video. Enjoy....

    Good shot, and good video.
    I used the 160's in several 7 mags. Good bullet weight for this caliber.

    Great shot! DRT 1-shot - well done.

    Once i'm 'up and running' again, i want to get back into reloading for my 7mm RM (as well as re-barrel, etc) and i'm looking to the 160gr Accubond for my hunting bullet (particularly for elk).

    What twist do you have in your rifle? Any other tech info on your rifle/load work-up would be great info!
