The new LRK draws first blood.

Here are the results of opening morning of the SD antelope season. The buck was taken at 225 yds and the doe was 340 yds. I was wanting at least 500 but only had until 11 to hunt and this was the only day. These are my first goats and first kills with the LRK from Jim See at Center Shot Rifles. These are my first goats and first kills for the rifle.

Surgeon Single Shot Action
Brux Barrel
Manners T2 Stock
CSR Muzzle Brake
Leupold Mark 4 6.5-20x50mm
7mm SAUM
168 gr Berger VLD

Sorry about the "back of the truck" shot, I had to get to work ASAP.

Re: The new LRK draws first blood.

I like the back of the truck shot, it shows off the LRH sticker. :P

They look like really nice ones, congratulations!

Congrats on the first kills of your LRH rig!!!
I like the back of the truck picture, it is a little blurry though. But it shows your hunting stickers and the LRH sticker also.
Keep up the good work.

Good hunting Ryan!

How did the Bergers work on those two?

They performed better than I imagined. I shot the buck right on the corner of the white and the exit hole was the size of a baseball. He took about two steps and flipped over backwards. The ground looked like someone dumped a bucket of blood. I high shoulder shot the doe and it was like someone hit her in the head with a sledgehammer. We are taking the LRK out next week to fill my wife's 3 tags in a better goat area and I am expecting her to take a bigger buck than me. We will definitely post pics of her hunt.
