Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

117 yds. for one 12 year old Grandson and 78 yards for another Grandson 8 years old! Each time...they had to sit in my lap to get up high enough to rest their rifle on the edge of the stand! Both....one shot kills on 10 pt. and 9pt Missouri whitetails!

That's LONG RANGE for them at present but it'll get better I can assure you!!

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

When I was a youngster, we lived in Freising, Germany at the foot of Weihenstephan Brewery
(BTW, the oldest brewery in the world).
Dad was in the Air Force and drove a new Road Master that the Braumeister just loved to drive. He was a big time chamois hunter that was headed into the ALPS all through the season and I was always tagging along with my fathers Wilmer 06. The last time we went, I got two. The first one was about 300 yds., and the other over 1/2 mile.
After we got back home, Dad was upset that he didn't make the hunt and that the Buick was a mess.
I was grinning from ear to ear and could have cared less.
I only wish I could still speak German.

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

As you lost?? prior data?? did you want older shots?? No long range this past 12 mos ...

But longest to date was Autumn 2007 ... Buck Antelope at 700 to 750 yds. -- One shot -- 340 Wby. (Brown Precision Pillar bedded kevlar stock, Rem. 700, RKS 26" barrel, VariX2 6-18 X40AO Loopy with Premier Reticle designed for load) 200 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip .. once fired brass ... 3290 fps (chrony) -- 30 km/hr full value wind... just behind the right shoulder blade slightly descending rearward for exit wound.... prone over a bipod .. Manyberries, Alberta

Longest prior - 9 years earlier -- 550 yd. (with same rifle) Cow Moose -- same load with .. 200gr. HT Bullet Caroline, Alberta {her boyfriend made getting to her problematic as he wanted to stay and was reluctant to leave -- and was not of pleasant disposition}

Longest prior to that -- a decade earlier yet -- 375 yd. Muley with .243 ... Mauser MarkX with Shilen Barrel and 100 gr. Nosler Partition ... Near Rocky Mtn. House, Alberta

Been increasing distances after training, practice and more confidence ... LRB

Don't believe it. Not with a 3-9 Scope at that yardage.
