Re: 7mm SMKs or A-Max for Whitetail?
7mag man, REGARDLESS of what anyone else says, its extremely irresponsible to be shooting 900yds at a deer, in a crosswind, when youve just missed 10x's at 2 deer that were 830yds away and then another deer that was 610 yards away (610is a chip shot compared to 894!). Imagine the kind of suffering that buck would have been in if your 7mm bullet had shattered one of his hindquarters instead of missing it by 6". Then imagine the outcome of an otherwise open-minded non-hunter, stumbling across your half-dead buck, half a mile from where you last found blood. LR Hunting is one thing, taking pot-shots at <u>big game</u> is another. I hope I didnt offend too many of you guys w/ this post--your awesome stories, advice, and knowledge is invaluable and I sure as heck didnt mean anything against LR hunting and shooting (Im obsessed w/ it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img])
I hope all of you guys have a great hunting season--Drew Stuart
