Not trying to hijack, but would you guys with 87 vamx experience shoot a doe antelope with it? If so, how far and what shot placement. Thanks, Eric

I'd shoot any Pronghorn with it. I've never seen an 87 V-Max that didn't exit a Coyote... and Pronghorn aren't much bigger. Get into a shoulder though, and you'll ruin A LOT of meat. That being said, I think there's a lot of better bullets out there for the job... 95 grain Berger or B-Tip come to mind. ~JT
