593 yard Whitetail

I got my second long range kill yesterday. This one was 2 yards closer than the first one but he's a lot better buck. One 105gr AMAX outta the 243 did the job at 593 yards. Its the same rifle that I used on the buck in my other thread. I recovered the bullet just under the hide on the off side after a trip thru the near shoulder and the lungs. Recovered weight is 53.6 grains. I wouldn't want to push the 243 much beyond 600 yards on deer as its starting to run outta steam on out there.

Congrats. Nice looking buck. I guess that helps answer a previous post on using the .243 at 500yds.

Re: 593 yard Whitetail

Thanks guys! I'd shoot deer all day long at 600 and under with the 243 and know I could kill every one but 600 is my limit I believe. I'm not saying you can't kill one past 600 because I know it will do it but the shot would need to be perfect. Coyotes and anything smaller would still be in trouble a lot farther out tho.
