Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

My longest for some time was 920 on a small NZ feral nanny goat.

I then drilled one at 1186 (on video), then within 5 mins of that one I picked up a dirty olde billy goat @ 1230 on the bush edge, the 300 gr SMK hit the shoulder, DRT!!

Unfortunatly the cameraman failed to tell me that he had run out of DVD space so that one wasnt caught on camera, but it was still well witenessed, me and two others.

Such a feeling of achivement!!

IMHO the smaller the target vs distance is the trophy.

    Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

    We have done this before. For big game I have shot moose, bear, elk, deer, caribou and antelope over 1000 yards with 270, 7mm, 30 and 338 caliber rifles chambered in several cartridges in each caliber. Longest was 1340 yards on a mule deer near Alder, Montana with a 300 wby mag in the 1970's. I gave the exact distance on the other thread like this because I looked it up in my notes. Shooting from the hip now but I am sure it was 1340 something.
