shot this Stag at 281yads with my Tikka T3 in 270 win using the 150gr Hunting Berger.

it hit low about 2cm, but it dropped him on the spot with a (high neck shot)



the bullet went straight threw, wonder how the 270 would go at Longer Range

Congratulations, nice stag. Thanks for the report on bullet performance - I plan to use this bullet in my 270 Wby sometime soon.
