My 14yo son has shot numerous deer in the last 4 years. But, he got his first long range kill this morning.
He shot a doe at 548 yards with a Sendero 7mm Rem Mag shooting 180gr Berger and 59.5gr of RL22.
1 shot in the crease behind the shoulder. ...dead before she heard the shockwave.
...actually, I shouldn't say 1 shot.
He's practiced now for about 2 yrs since we first got a copy of the Shooting Beyond Belive DVD set.
I have just over 1,000 rounds on 8 different rifles recorded for him in an Excel spreadsheet.
I am very proud of him as any dad would be.
Thanks for all the pointers!!!
