Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Big game, last 12 months? 80 yards .338 federal. I hunted some thick gnarly timber a couple of times last year. For the area that was a long shot.

Anytime I got out to some of my long range areas nothing, wanted to come out and play. It's all good though I'll take big game however I can get them.

I would like to stretch the legs on my .300 RUM this year though.

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Longest big game kill in the last 12 months was a white tail 6 point buck last Oct, thought he was a 8 point but he had no brow tines I later found out. I had to shoot quick. I was walking to my hunting stand in the evening. I just entered the log road that I was going to hunt that had two huge cut overs on either side. Out pops the buck and two doe. I knew that they were right at 300 yards because they were right at the bend of the road where my stand was. I dropped down in the prone position and cranked the Zeiss 3-12X56 up to 12. I sent a 117 gr Sierra pro hunter pushed by 49 grs IMR 4350 lit by a CCI 250 primer in a Remington case going 3050 fps down the 26" SS #6 Shilen barrel of my 700 Remington action H&S Precision stocked 25-06 Remington caliber rifle in about half the time it took me to type this. I was rewarded with a POP as the 117 Sierra pro hunter landed in the center of the bucks front shoulder and he dropped like a rock. Later lazed at 307 yards.
