Well...as of 1pm this afternoon I'm fresh outta baldy tags!! I used the first tag on a short range doe with the T/C Contender 45/70 Govt (SSK barrel). My second tag was reserved for a 400+yd shot. Here's the results of a 162gr A-Max delivered within 2" of POA at 460yds. The gun is a XP-100 with about all the tricked out goodies that Kirby (APS) could throw at it!!
Lilja barrel, Holland Lug, action and bolt trued, Sako extractor, DE brake, HS stock, chambered in 7mm/270WSM. It throws the 162AM's at 2825fps.
With my big lug behind her she does not look too substantial in size but she was the largest of the four.
I was just sittin' along side my fire, munchin' some crackers and feelin' kinda drowsy when four deer came leggin' it across the strip cut and stopped where they apparently felt safe. I hit them with the 20X Burris spotter to check for antlers. All were bald, ranged the largest with the RX4, dropped a cartridge in the chamber, held the 3rd SU of the 3-12x32 Burris just under her heart and sent the A-Max across the valley. She was quartering too me a little farther than expected. I clipped the near-side lung, through the liver, gut and exited the front edge of the right side ham. She ran forty yards and immediately laid down. After a few minutes her head dropped for good. I watched for 20 minutes until satisfied she was done then made the trek to get her.
This is my longest deer with a handgun by nearly 100yds. It also beats my longest rifle shot by 15yds. I guess I'm down to buck hunting now.
