Got a crow at 398yds.!!!

I was at my range where I have my steel targets set up @ 300,350,400,450 and 500yds.
And my friend and I were just getting set up and ready to shoot when I noticed a crow at the 400 yard steel target. So I told my friend I was going to take him out. He chuckled and gave me one of those "yeah right". Anyways, cranked my Mark 4 up 7 moa and let the Savage and 178 gr. Amax do the rest. Needless to say he didn't even flop. And the expression on my friends face was PRICELESS.

    Way to go 308! Nothing like reaching out and touching one of those little smarta$$e$. I love it when they "think" they're outta range. My longest shot on one was right at 400yds also. Took him out with a 7mm RM and 150gr NBT's. The bullet blew him into 5 pieces. There were about 4 or 5 more with him and they did know whether to s*** or git. I love shooting those birds. NC changed their status to migratory so now we aren't supposed to shoot them with rifles. Johnny K.

    Nice shooting 308. Those distant crows make for some interesting shooting. Here's one that took a 70gr B-Tip through the neck. Notice that its got no head. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Good shooting, I didn't catch it, but what rifle were you using to make that shot? It wasn't a .308 was it? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    I have to agree with you guys about nailing those birds. I've touched them with a 7mm but never a 308. my longest kill was a crow perched on a road-kill carcass at just over 350 with my 243 and 55gr Sierra blitzking bullets. The 4.5-14X Leopold VXIII was as good for this as it is for Antelope. have fun neutralizing the crow population!!

    Thanks for your comments. I hate those dang crows but I hate even worse that Oklahoma puts a season and restrictions on them. Man, we got so many crows it's crazy. This is also my first long shot kill on one. However I will be sprinkling the range with corn from now on in hopes for many more. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
