Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

I would probably be in the running for the record of the shortest kill on a deer, he was no more than 25 yards, I could go back & measure it, just for the record. It was getting dark and I was sitting with my back against a tree stump on the side of a track when he dropped down from higher ground onto the track right behind me, no more than 3 or 4 yards from me. I heard him and stayed perfectly still, he saw me but wasn't sure how to react as I didn't move. He walked down the track for a few yards and glanced back, I didn't move but watched him from the corner of my eye. He got a little nervous and broke into a light gentle trot along the track, I switched on the red dot, flicked off the safety, raised the rifle and watched him for a few paces. There was a bend in the track about 30 yards away and I reckoned he would stop there but he stopped short and turned broadside to have a better look at me. Next friday I'll be collecting venison joints, cutlets, mince, burgers and bones for my dog from the butcher.

Bull elk, 1,230 yds...7mm Rem. Mag...69 Gr. H4831...160gr. Nosler Partition, 3128 fps. Bullet just cracked open , never really mushroomed and was against hide on far side of animal. Won't take a shot like that at game again, just not enough umpf to open bullet up!

I honestly wouldn't know that one. There are a lot of elk out here on the ranch but we mostly shoot those with a bow. I'm willing to bet its does a well enough with a 220 grain bullet.

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

I haven't shot any big game. I'm strictly a varmint shooter since I usually hunt alone and am not set up for having to pack out large animals. Besides, it's a lot of work.
