Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

427 yards, upstate Newark Valley, New York on a friends farm with a cal 308, 180 grain Cor-lockt remington Roundnose. In over 150 deer harvested over 40 years no more than 10 went over 10 yards after being hit. I beleive now you have to order direct from Remington as very few dealers carry RN's. Everyone wants Spire points but they lack the shock factor that a roundnose has. Have used the same bullet all over this country, and it has never failed me. If anyone remembers the shots that were taken with the M-24 and M42, in Nam by Carlos Hathcock the .308 has all the distance and accuracy that was necessary. Accuracy was achieved with cal 308, 168grain BTHP from Lapua. It was called a Kate.

Best shots in the past 12 months. 2 hits on a coastal brown bear from an ocean floating 40 foot boat at an estimated 400 yards (rain was giving my RF fits) with a 375 Ruger and 270 grain TSX. 1st shot center punched as he was stepping up the bank from the beach. The shot spun the bear back down the beach to provide an opportunity for a 2nd shot. 2nd shot hit right behind the ear to put him down.

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Now there's some shooting--and using a RF too! I've shot blacktails off bobbing boats off Hawkins and Hinchinbrooke islands years ago. Then you got to get them and if surf's up, well--you can imagine--but usually they won't present on the windward side due that biting wind. Challenging.

I tried using the RF but I wasn't getting any feedback due to the rain, so I had to make a quick estimate on the range. Luckily, my estimate was close enough to hit the bear twice. My estimate was 400 yards. I have no idea what the true range was. It wasn't a huge bear, but I'll never forget the kill shots.
