Ellis County Oklahoma deer

I got this guy Tuesday morning out in Western Oklahoma. He was hanging with one d doe and four smaller bucks. I was using my 7mm STW, loaded with 140 grain Barnes TTSX bullets that were running 3,303fps. I loaded/used the Barnes bullets on a buddies recommendation and it worked great. The deer was standing broadside at 304 yards and it knocked the fire out of him. The bullet caused about a 2" exit wound and cratered everything in between.

    Great buck, congrats! I use Barnes TTSX bullets in a couple hunting rifles and they have been very good to me on whitetails.

    Congrats!

    Those 7mm STWs are a real killer!

    You ought to repost this thread in the "7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner" thread. The Brotherhood would love to see these pics!
