Re: Longest shot?

My longest is 2 ghogs. First at 628 yards and the other throught the mellon at 605 yards. Shot prone with in a 300WSM. Both one shot kills. The 628 skipped in from about 12 inches, but still managed to take it right behind the shoulders. I came to find out later that it was all luck that I had hit them at all. I did some paper tests at 500yrds and it wasn't pretty. I back to trying to find a load again. Regardless of the outcome, I still think it was a heck of shot and my longest first shot hits ever.

    240 yards 4 point buck DRT. I looked at a nice doe at 500 this past season, but she was on the other side of a fence, where I did not have permission to hunt.

    Good restraint. I like to hear stories where guys excersize good judgement when hunting. To often I hear stories of guys going on to posted ground and shooting illeagally because there is a good buck or just want to kill something. Thanks for being a good sportsmen!
