LOL, no doubt, I was joking but knew you had plans to get plenty, 50 per year is alot compared to here in the US.

Good hunting, and shooting.

Re: 260 Rem: 120 A-Max for deer?

I know this is an Older thread, I stumbled onto it looking for load recommendations for my new 260. I'm going to start with the 123 gr Amax. What are you using for powders?

Also, Roe, nice shooting, nice rifle. I wish we had that many targets to shoot at here in Maine. Either you are HUGE or those deer are small. What is the average weight of the deer you are shooting?

Thanks!

I just watched some video and thought the same thing about the size when I saw two being drug at the same time, one handed, and that it seemed like a dozen fit in the pickup.

Some awesome videos and shooting. Interesting that you can shoot that many and in states like Pa, you can shoot one, maybe two in a lot of areas.

Roe and i are close friends, so i can answer. We hunt at the same place.

Roedeer are small (Roe deer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
body length of 95135 cm (3.124.43 ft)
shoulder height of 6575 cm (2.132.46 ft)
weight of 1530 kg (3366 lb)

If you take of the legs, head, fur and of course everything inside, the average weight are 15kg (33lb)
