My wife took her mule deer at 675yrds with a 308 and the 155 amax. She hit a little far back on the ribs due to a bad wind call on mine and my buddies part but that buck didn't even slow the bullet down. It left about a 2 inch exit. He went a short ways (right toward us) before he was done. I dont have pics but hope to have the hunt on youtube soon. We did get the hunt on video.

luke, thanks, congrats to your wife on a great shot, surprised on the 2" exit. I would love to see the video once you have it up, please post a link here once done.

Thanks,
