Another SMK story

Took my son (7 years old) out to shoot his first deer. He studied hard to pass hunter safety and has practiced a bunch to shoot well. Second evening he took a doe at 97 yards (long range for a kid). 243 with 70gn SMK, 38 gns 4064. Perfect broadside hit. She ran 20 yards and dropped dead. Bullet hit a rib going in, took out both lungs and broke far rib, stopping just under skin in three pieces. One happy boy!
