Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

I killed an elk at a 1000 meters... but then I woke up and realized I had been dreaming. In all seriousness I think my longest was about 150 yards. I used to hunt in TX when I lived down there and the ranches I hunted had heavy brush so not a lot of chance to shoot at range. But now I'm in MT and I'm hoping to change that 150 into something a lot farther, eventually

It looked like I shot a black pillow , little black feathers floated down for minutes .

I can relate to the black pillow! I shot one out of a tree in Michigan, where I grew up, with a 25-06 and 100 grain speer. It looked like he swallowed some dynamite. A black cloud in the middle and a wing floating down on each side of the tree like a helicopter blade......Rich

Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

My longest kill to date was a great eastern ground hog at 840 yards with a 300 WSM shooting 175gr Nosler custom comps, through the neck.. There isn't much of a story to go with it other than I was by myself and had no spotter. That was the only ground hog for the summer. I can't wait to hit something with my Lapua with the 300 OTM's.

I can't wait to see you hit something with the OTM's when I'm there.

Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

Mine was a whitetail doe at 998 yards. Watched her walk up a hill, bed down in the sage, could only see her head , looking in my direction. Hit her between the eyes with my Cooper 6.5x284/5x20 Huskemaw scope.
