Well I killed a coyote at 775 yards with the 300 RUM, but thats not considered big-game...Farthest big-game with the 300 RUM was 513 yards on a spike bull elk, 200g AB rocked his world to say the least...

I have been doing quite a bit of practicing lately with my 7 RM/162g AMAX out to 800 yards and feel real confident with it out to that distance if there is very little to no wind and I have a very good laying prone w/bipod rest.

This probably dont count but...the rancher I bought my BLR 7mag from said he kilt a cow elk at 623 measured yards with it. The scope is a original 4x Denver Redfield. He was using green box Rem ammo.
I believe him.

I hope to do as well with the Mod 70 7mag 26" he later sold me.

490 measured yards about 35 degrees up hill on a muley buck. Yum yum.

(Edit 1/16/8) This last season I broadsided a mule deer doe through both lungs and aorta at 380 and another doe the same way at 530. The cool part is 4 complete strangers walked up on us as my bro and I were setting up the 530 yard shot. They couldn't find the deer until they saw it rolling down the hill. 2 bullets, 2 deer. Gotta love it.

(Edit 10/31/8) This season brought a 1 shot kill on a 420 yard mule deer that went right through the center of a rib, pierced the diaphram, fractured the liver and exited near the kidneys. All 4 of these deer were shot with a .30 cal Nosler J4 from a .308 win. MV about 2600 fps
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!
