Not Exactly Long Range

I took this buck at 300 yards facing me with the 180 TSX from my 300 Win Mag. The bullet entered the side of the neck entered the chest area and took out 5 ribbs, continueing full length of the Deer and shattering the hip before exiting

range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

Good shooting!

That type of penetration and bullet performance should solidify confidence in the load.

Good shooting!

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

Meat in the freezer and horns on the wall. Way to go John.
Find it
Range it
Click it
Pull it
Dump it

If it's not far, it's boring.
