Last year 988 yds on Cow Elk with JLK 180 7mag. This year 898 yds on Cow Elk with Berger 180. Both shots were absolutely lethal. They both dropped dead in their tracks. The one this year had a 15mph cross wind @ 90degrees.

Thanks man! Ya I have a CPG 7mag that has around 1100 rounds thru it in 3 years. I really like to put myself in as many real world scenarios as possible to become a better shooter when it counts!

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

My longest shot so far was on a bear. I shot it at 530 even...dropped it in its tracks. Then I went to Wyoming and shot two antelope. The first one was at 356 and the second was at 495. Both of them dropped in their tracks as well. Prior to this year, my longest was my 2011 bear at 432.

All these were shot with a factory Remington 700 LSS chambered in 300 RUM. I am shooting 210 Berger VLDs with 92g of Retumbo. It is running them out at about 3025 fps.

Scope is a Nikon Monarch 4-16x42 with the BDC retical. The antelope at 365 and the bear at 432 I just used the BDC. The two longer shots I dialed for.
