Re: Prairie deer shoot 2004

It's good to see some other nodaks on this board!was begining to think I was the only one.
yeah, I could handle one gun for each deer.
lets see.....If i can get three tags a year that would be three new guns each year..definately could handle that! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
And my wife takes two each year.......but I think I would have a hard time convincing her she need two new guns.
my father in law wants to take a deer at 1,000 yards so I am building Him a 7mm ultra mag for the task and I just got one of those wild range finders so we will see if we are up to the task when next year's hunting season rolls around.
so have too much fun and fill all your tags.

Re: Prairie deer shoot 2004

It is kind of like tree stand hunting, but as you notice without the trees. I had some new loads that needed testing so four rifles for four deer. My first curiosity was the 175 gr SMK out of my 308 at 2650 fps. I have read that SMKís are not good for deer because they shoot through like full metal jacket. Then I have read that they are to explosive. I needed to find out for myself. I shot one deer at 700 yards which was a little far for a 308, but it did fine. I shot another at 115 yards and although I hit three inches behind the left front shoulder and took off the top of the heart there was more meat damage than I found acceptable. The 165 Game King hitís the same spot for me and does a much better job. Although I brought along four rifles it was windy gusting to 23 mph at times so I didnít take the long shots I would liked to. The 700 yard shot was ten minutes before sunrise (we can hunt Ĺ hour before) while it was still calm. So now I have loads that will have to wait for next year to try. I could buy more tags, but I donít think I can eat more venison.

My son used my 300 Win Mag for a couple shots, but both were high. I noticed that it is on at 100 yards, but rises about ľ inch (at 100 yards) for every 200 yards. At 1000 yards it was shooting about 12 - 13 inches high.
The thing I noticed most between the 308 and 300 mag was resistance to wind drift. While shooting in 20 + mile an hour wind it took me, I think it was six shots, to hit a six inch swinging target at 600 yards. The 300 Win mag hit the first shot, hit the support arm two inches high the second shot, and hit again the third shot.

Anyway, it was perhaps more of a family, friends get together as well as a coffee, coke, cookies eating activity as it was hunting.

Hey Long Shot 300. I understand you might have a very accurate 223 for sale with scope for around $500. If that is true, please email me back:

Thank you,
