Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

About 100 yards haha. Last day of the season when I saw this little two point muley. Decided that I needed some meat in the freezer so I dropped him. Never even got to shoot at a elk last year. Hopefully this fall I will and be able to push some farther shots!

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Last deer season with my Dad in his treestand.

I shot a whitetail doe/deer "neckshot" with my Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STW at 230 yards.

The doe dropped DRT like she got hit by lightning!

Below are pics of the doe with me and then with my Dad, "Pop".

Was it me this question was aimed at???

It was built by Tom Bryant (my Father) in Evanston, Wyoming (he calls his business "The Gun Guy"). 6x47 Lapua: Savage Model 12 action, 30" Lilja barrel, Shrewd muzzle brake, topped by Leupold VXII 6-18x40. 39 gr. H4350, 95 gr. Sierra MK, 3100 fps.

825 yds is the farthest I've done on game animals, pretty consistent with 1100 yard milk jugs though. I don't have much experience with Extreme Long Range stuff, but when the stars align it will get hits on the City's 3' x 3' one-mile gong. I usually have to click up 62-65 MOA from a 200 yard zero. My zero is at the dead bottom of my scope travel too, which helps I guess.

sure is fun!!

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

In the past 6 months I've shot a lot of deer under the spotlight(my job deer manager) and although not truly long distance I have had a few cracking good shots (if I do say so myself). My work rifle is a Tikka .270 T3 20" barrel laminate stainless with Gunworks moderator S&B zenith 3-12x50 scope and loaded with 130gr Nosler BTs avg 2800fps with 58.6gn H4831. These shots I recorded in my cull diary and are all head shots due to difficult angles normally because the deer is walking away and stops for one last look over there shoulder before reaching cover. Ranges recorded in meters via Lieca Geovid 10x42. All were shot off the bonnet or roof of the pickup a part from the last one which was a bit of a mess up!

197 m Red deer stag calve 10/10/12
170 m Sika stag 24/11/12
166 m Sika stag 137 meter Sika stag (10 minutes later) 22/12/12
174 m Sika stag 3/1/13
155m Sika hind and calf 22/1/13
234m Roe Doe 13/2/13
215m Red stag 4/3/13
322m Red hind wounded at 220m shooting off quad sticks (5 shots fired a bit over confident)
This coming season I'm hoping to start with some decent long range stuff with my new 300 win mag 600+ providing I can get it shooting well.
