First hunting round from my new LR Hunting rifle

Put the rifle together back like in Mid June 2013.
Dialed in round testing, shot two matches, Fired about 300 rounds prior to hunting, then to the mountains for elk November 2013.

Results single round fired - 7MMRM 180 Berger VLD hunting.
Confirmed kill 524 yards hit in bread basket, animal went 40-70 yards to fall to ground - DOA.
This is hiking in the field shot off pack.

Great work! I get my first opportunity this weekend on some deer. I'm shooting a 7RM also, but with the 168 Berger's. I hope to have a positive report like you! Thanks for posting.
