Nice work mate. Just got back into reception today and Jaws told me you got a kill. Should be heading down to Vic in about two weeks for a crack.

    Nice going Chewbacca! I like the outfit.

    I had the same kind of performance with the .338Edge/300gr SMK on a white tailed buck two seasons back. The only damage I've seen anywhere close to this on a deer was from a .444Marlin loaded with 240gr hollow points through both shoulders...that 300gr bullet is the Hammer of "THOR!". Literally, "THOR!" is my rifles name- it deserves a manly man name.

    Wasn't somebody questioning the SMK's performance as a hunting bullet not to long ago

    Yep, and the answer is always the same...do it, don't do it, don't do it with the smaller calibers.
