    You guys are good. My longest HG shot was about 30 yards. I shot the first doe and a second one just stood there. So I shot that one as well. I made good clean shots but then again who wouldn't at 30 yards. I have a long ways to go to catch up with the wonderful shots you guys have been making.

    Keep up the great shooting.

    hunlee will Keep on shooting animal at close range if possable but going to work on being a long range man.Allways better to be responsable hunter and kill animal at close range that shoot along way out and only wound animal.Hunlee is sure you will never hear about animal that get away when shooting out at long range.Dont get hunlee rong about this,if practice to shoot out at long range that ok with hunlee,but bad hit on animal will happen.Me new 7-30 water barrel will be setup very soon with new Burris 3-12x power and with practice deer can be killed farther out that when shooting 375 Windchester.You understand what hunlee is saying?

    Hunlee,

    Get that gun setup and start shooting it. I dont know much about a 7-30 so let me know how it works. I bet it will be great.

    Shoot straight!!

    I haven't really made any long-range shots with a handgun, as compared to some on this site.

    I mainly hunt with a handgun in my home state of MS, in heavily timbered terrain. I use a TC Contender with either a 309JDJ w/a red-dot scope or a 375JDJ w/a 2-7x Nikon.

    I have taken two whitetail bucks with the 309. The first was a 120's 8pt @ 45yds, he was quartering towards my treestand at a good pace. I picked out an opening and brought him to a screeching halt.(Never would have hit him without the red-dot)

    The second buck was a 137" 10pt @ 80yds. Once again I was in a treestand and he came crusing down a trail checking for a hot doe. I never tried to make him stop, I just put the dot behind the shoulder and dropped the hammer.
