My big Mulie

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share my success. I took this big guy at 823 yards. He measures 26" wide and 21" tall. This is my longest kill to date which about doubles the distance of my previous record.

I used my 338 Lapua Timberwolf, shooting 300 grain matchkings at 2760 fps. I used the Exbal program to get my elevation and windage adjustment which gave me a first shot kill exactly where my point of aim was. It was a double lung shot with a complete passthrough.

The rest of it is in that cooler you see in the background. We had to pack it out, we were down a very steep canyon and couldn't drag the mulie out. The deer weighed around 250 lbs. So we quartered it out and got the meat off the ribcage and backpacked it out.

I forgot to bring my camera with me so I couldn't get any pictures until I got home, I was really bummed out.

Re: My big Mulie

I haven't scored him, and wouldn't know where to begin. My friends said he would score around 165.

The 300 SMK dropped it like a log, it didn't even blink. I think it died of shock before the bullet even hit it when he noticed it was a Matchking comming his way. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
