What a hoot! I've always loved Rem Core Lokts but who'd a thunk they'd perfom that well at long range? Great range options, keep us posted. BTW we're expecting 25 below zero tonight here in Wyoming...enjoy your weather for the rest of us

Re: taking my encore out to 650yds

My particular Sendero in 7 mag didn't care for the HSMs but for some strange reason it did pretty well at 650 with some inexpensive stuff I bought for plinking.

Midway Prvi Partizan Ammunition 7mm Remington Magnum 174 Grain Pointed Soft Point.

Antelope hunting is especially fun because you're almost always within sight of some; so if you blow a stalk you can regroup and try again. The weather is usually nice and there isn't the same kind of pressure that comes with elk or mule deer hunting. It's all fun though!

Take care.
Matt

Re: taking my encore out to 650yds

Antelope are beautiful animals... but they eat sagebrush! For most of the years I've hunted them I've asked my processor to turn them into hot and spicy breakfast sausage and jerky. A friend brought me some of the most delicious antelope stroganoff I've ever tasted. I may have to rethink my position.
