Re: Your Longest Kill on Game
I killed a Cow Moose at 810 yards. One shot, she humped up and turned 180 deg. Stood there for all of 10 seconds then her rear end went out from under her down she went. Just like they do at 80 yards. Complete pass through taking out both lungs and the heart.
But the one I'm most proud of was a grizzly at 620 yards. It was a down hill shot, my Lupold range finder said sight for 578 yards. I dialed 575. Later found out it was a complete pass through, both lungs. Bear turned and started running directly away. Second shot rolled Bear. later found out that shot broke the spine just behind the shoulders. Bear was partially behind a bush, standing on it's front legs looking around. Bear looked like it was ready to start running again, so I put a third shot through it's neck, dropping it instantly. All three shots were killing shots, just I could not tell it at that range.
I was using a .338/378 Weatherby, 250gr Nosler Partition, and a 3.5-15X50 Night Force scope.
What Is A Veteran?
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.' That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today who no longer understand that fact.
