Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Nice buck Mike and a helluva shot. What's the specs on your rifle? And maybe a little info on that shot.

Good going, Chuck Jorgensen.

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Rifle is a 338 Lapua built on a 700 action. PT&G custom bolt. Tubb recoil lug, 26"fluted Krieger with a muscle brake. sitting in a greybull stock, PT&G bottom metal, Timney trigger. Badger 30 MOA base and Badger Max 50 rings Leupold 6.5-20x50mm.
The shot.... we knew where he was so we went and looked at him one last time, then drove down the road because I wanted to break 1k. so we got all set up with video camera and and rifle and then he laid down. All I could see was the base of his neck on up So I decided I would give a neck shot a try then when I missed he would stand up and id put one in his shoulder. so I doped my spin drift and wind and let it rip. he stood up and took off into a draw with his does and they never came out the other side so we went over there to scare them out so we could go back ant try another shot. Got up there and a bunch were bedded so we got them up but he just laid there and a minute or so later he died. I figured I had gut shot him. but my 300 SMK had whizzed right through his neck missing his spine and clipped his artery. He just bled out. no expansion on the bullet at all that I could tell.
