Too soon old, too late, but I had to slap these in here... Alaska Yukon moose, 388 yards (1998, but measured later); same @ 361 yards (2005); same @ 403 yards (2007) all with M70 Winchester 270, 140 Barnes, 61 grains RL 22, Leupold 2.5-8. 2010's bull--six feet and closing--same equipment, and no, contact was thwarted, but he fell 30 feet beyond me as he no longer had control of himself. See photo.
Today's technology has me all excited and I'm pining to convert my M70 375 into a 300 Lapua Mag with a cylinder 28" barrel and Nightforce scope--got some lakes and my river that present some long range challenges... If any of you have some advice on my dream don't be timid--send them on!
It don't matter what you hit him with; it's where you hit him that counts.
my last kill(s) was november in sully county, SD along the river bluffs. 2 mule antlerless atop the ridge line i'm GUESSING 200 yards out. up hill shot into 30 mph wind blowing to my 8 o-clock in below freezing temp with a borrowed .22-250. never shot it before, no idea what kind of bullets. luckiest shots ever. i aimed a foot over their backs where the neck meets the back thinking, "that looks about right", from a cross-legged position and dropped both of them with one shot each in the neck. hopefully next time i have a clue. but i can't complain...that was within 30 minutes of the start of my only day hunting last year. BTW...saw 2 8 point mules out there. wish i had the tags.
