4X4 elk at 586 yards ranged with bushnell laser range finder. Taken with a 264 Win Mag in Rem 700 BDL using a handloaded 140 remington Core Lokt. H4831 SC pushing the bullet at 3060fps. 2 shots on him while he was quartering away entered the left flank and found under the skin behind the off side shoulder. He stood still for about 5-10 seconds then fell. 2nd shot was probably not needed but he was about 150 yards from crossing a fence and was a insurance follow up. Prior to that it was 486 yards on a 5X5 bull elk and then 374 yards on a 5X6. Will have to start another log book because mine was stolen out of my truck along with my 1851 navy cap and ball revolver when I walked back in the house to grab another hand full of bags this christmas while visiting family. Still sick over it.

Antelope @ 552yds, Rem700P 300WM, 208Amax/71.5Re22/215M, Leu MK4 6.5x20 M1 TMR in Lingle WY. Hit right behind shoulder and it went straight down. I know Hornady doesn't recommend these for hunting, but I have had excellent results thus far. Also shot a large mulie doe on this hunt(at about 75yds), and she went about 50 yards before piling up. Took an eight point back home in Wisconsin in November at about 100 yards, and he made it about 75 yards. Both deer were also broadside heart/lung shots. Hopefully I will have more to add to the list after the next trip out to Lingle this fall. Jim See @ Center Shot is about 40min to my south and is building a 260 for me (R700/Brux MedPalma/HS stock) and I can't wait to get it in my hands.
