My Big one.

I just thought Id'e share some pix of the buck I took on opening day.
I realize it probably wouldn't be considered long range.I took him at 200 yds. And He went down without taking a step.
This is the biggest buck I have ever shot.
So naturally I was/am excited! He has a 21" spread and the main beams are 25" long!
with the longest spike being 10" long! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
I used my .308 with a 168gr.nosler combined technology.
The .308 is a remingtom 700 action,sleeved bolt,tactical bolt handle,McMillan stock,pillar bedded with teflon coated barrel and action. all the work was done by myself. This gun was my guinea pig when I first started gunsmithing.And whenever I want to try something new I do it to this one first.The gun shoots very well and was prepared to take a 500yd. shot.
the dear was shot in the hills of North Dakota about 15 miles from my home.Pictures were taken at my home because I didn't take a camera with me.
enjoy the pix. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

    You sure don't see one like that every day! Congratulations.
