Mark Hamptons bucks with APS XP-100s

Many of you that are into specialty handgun hunting need no intro to this man. Mark Hampton is probably one of the very most worldwide experienced handgun hunters in the world. There are not to many places on the planet Mark has not hunted with handguns.

He has authored many books on handgun hunting and is currently the editor of Sixgunner magazine.

He contacted me with the pics of his buck on top and his wifes buck and wanted me to post the pics on LRH. I did not get alot of data on the bucks or the hunt other then his buck was taken with a 308 Win I build for him in Missouri and his wife took her buck with a 6.5 WSM I build as well.

Both are great bucks, Marks is a VERY nice buck!!!

Just thought you would like to see some pics of nice deer.

Great pictures. Mark's articles have all ways been very informative and great to read. My first LRP was purchased from Mark, his HS Precision 308, Still got it and still hunt with it some.

Sweet bucks--man that guy's a helluva HG hunter!!

In the '08 issue of Guns Magazine Annual there's an excellent article by Mark regarding the SP's entitled, "Quarter Mile Handguns". There are at least 2 rigs there that were built by APS.

In the Spring '07 issue of Dakota Magazine (Dakota Arms) Ernie Bishop authored the best technical long-range handgun shooting article i've ever read entitled, "7mm Dakota". In there he details his APS 7 Dakota XP. 2 pics. of some of the best LR HG shots i've ever seen made were in that article--2 1st shot connections at 613 yds. and 1000 yds. (lost a dinner on that 1000 yd. shot).

There will be another article on that APS XP coming up in the next issue of Handgun Hunter magazine (if the editor ever gets it going again), entitled, "Puff Really is a Fire-Breathing Dragon."
