    I just recently did calculations for a 105gr A-Max at 2980fps out the barrel. It was still carrying 883.8 ft/lbs of energy at 600 yards and 754.4 ft/lbs at 700 yards... That is plenty to put a deer down right now assuming a good shot.

    Congrats and nice shot! The 243 Winchester is a classic deer hunting round and was obviously well within its capabilities at 520 yards. Just goes to prove that you do not have to have a 7mm+ round to make good efficient kills at over 500 yards.

    I also like how you can see that the scope was dialed right in for the range!

    As far as I am concerned, someone that wants to bash this combination is flat out ignorant.
    LOL. Oh yeah! There are three kinds of ignorance. Normal, willful , and terminal. The first can be corrected with education the last two can't be fixed....that's why Obama is president. Have used the 243 for deer in Arizona and New Mexico for decades and have never had an animal go missing and only one that required a second shot. Great shooting little sister!
