Re: what long range hunt do you have this year???

I had an antelope tag in southern oregon that I filled about 3 weeks ago. I was using a Winchester Model 70 in 25-06. I used the 117gSBT to take him at 542 yards. 1 shot through his shoulders and he dropped. Leupold vx2 6-18x40 Target scope.

I also drew a deer tag for eastern oregon. I can shoot either a muley or whitetail at ranges out to 700 yards, hopefully no more than 600. This hunt starts in a month or so and I will be using my 25-06, and I am working on a 115g combined technology ballistic silvertip load as I loved this bullet out of my old 25-06 Ruger, but have yet to shoot it out of my new Winchester.

I will also have a 2nd season general spike elk tag. I will be using a Remington 700 LSS in .300 RUM with a Leupold MK4 4.5x14x50 in Leupold weaver rings/bases. I am currently working on a load for this rifle as well, have a bunch of loads loaded up with the 165g sciroco, 180g ctbt, 180g sst, and 200g AB, with several different powders, IMR-7828, H-1000, and RL-22. Rifle use to shoot great, now not so great. Might end up using my 25-06 with a 110g AB for spike elk.

Just back from Quebec took a REALLY nice bull at 336 yrds w/257 Wthrby 115 grain BT.
Going to Idahoe in last week Oct/Nov for elk and deer. Expecting cross canyon shooting for that big bull the guide says that nobody can get at 700+. Looking for a REALLY nice whitetail or HUGE mulie. That be in the Clearwater area outside of Orfino. Using the big 30 Hammonds w/190's.
