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.
