I assume the 2nd shot was the 2nd deer you took (from what I assumed occured in the bottom left hand corner).
What was the distance of the shot?
Without giving away you shooting spot what range in NZ were you hunting?
Great stuff!!
Youre onto it! just over 100 yards or so. The range was the best in NZ (Free Range public land) ;)

Good shooting and nice video Steve,

I've been a 7mm Rem Mag man most of my hunting life. Assuming that was a 7mm 08 it did a great job along with the 120 TSX. I've just gotten a 300 WSM and was planning to load some 168 gr TTSX's for it, but now leaning toward the the new 180 gr E-Tips Nosler has come out with.

Those 120 gr bullets coming out of the 7mm are good flat shooters.

How far out are you comfortable shooting with them?

Mark
