Re: The little green 7mm AM strikes again!!!

BB,

I agree, this deer is very tan colored, actually more of a red to be honest which is pretty rare up here for a deer of this age and this time of year. He will make a beautiful shoulder mount.

I am sad to say "Little Green" missed for the first time though. Not the rifles fault though, damn pilot error. Need to get that sling off so its out of the way of the rear bag.

XP,

Thanks for the kind words. He is not my biggest buck but he is my biggest 4x4 whitetail so far. He is right up there with my heaviest buck though as far as mass is concerned. I will post some more pics to show his mass better.

Re: The little green 7mm AM strikes again!!!

Shawn,

Ya know its funny, when I took this rifle to the range the first couple times at 100 yards I was not overly impressed with it as far as accuracy was concerned. It is a legit 5/8" to 3/4" rifle at 100 yards. Being as it was a very light weight rifle for its level of power I was happy with that and was just going to limit it to 600 yards and under hunting for a general purpose rifle.

Well, since that time I have gotten her out at long range and have been totally amazed what it has done at longer ranges.

If you had asked me after those two range session if I would be using the rifle past 600 yards I would have laughed at you.

Now it has chalked up the following one shot kills on big game, 300 yard pronghorn, 600 yard pronghorn, 730 yard pronghorn and a 745 yard whitetail. Yes the deer was a two shot afair but that was my fault not the rifles.

I guess thats why I tell my customers that they should test any load that will consistantly print under 3/4 moa at 100 yards with these extremely long heavy Wildcat Bullets at longer range because they will suprise you most of the time.

I have one more important shot to pull off this year and hopefully you will be witness to it!!

Very excited now about coming down to hunt with you!!

Nice buck Kirby! Great shootin' as usual. "Little green" is making quite a name for herself, I hope I can fondle her some day. Good luck with Shawn over in Ideeho! Cant wait to hear the story on that hunt.
God Bless
Jim

Mike / TX,

Yep, its hard to find an old mature buck that is even, tall, relatively wide and heavy. I got lucky on this big boy!! Very thankful.

Look forward to hearing what your hunting season produces!!
