I am new to the forums and just trying to get acquainted, so I thought I would post a link to a video of our Wyoming hunt in 2010.
The first antelope shot on camera was taken at 360 yards with a .300 Rem. Ultra Mag and 168 gr. Barnes TSX. The mule deer was taken with a Remington Sendero 7mm STW at 138 yards, not a long range at all. Both of these kills are a good representation of what we have seen with the Barnes TSX bullets. The next antelope was taken with a .257 Arnold Mag. (264 Win Mag necked down to 25 caliber) and a 100 gr. Sierra SP.
While my son and I generally prefer larger calibers, I am fully aware that they are much more than needed for antelope. I've taken about as many antelope with a 25-06 as anything else. I just like the way the heavier calibers put them on the ground.
The Barnes TSX has really impressed us. One shot drop kills is the norm. We only had two walk / run about 25 yards out of about 10 kills. All others hit the dirt instantly.
I love the 7mm STW cartridge. Does anyone else have experience with that round?
Regards to all.
