gotta send my APS rifle back

For the first time in 3 seasons and 14 deer, I put a 160 accubond through a deers shoulder from my 7mm AM, and it took 1 step before collapsing, so I'm sending it back and letting kirby touch it, so it regains the magic. seriously guys, I think if I put the crosshairs on a deer and drop the hammer on an empty chamber, the deer would still die!
kirby chalk me up for a 702 yard whitetail. HOW DOES HE DO IT?

    I sure do feel sorry for you. Having to put up with that. It should be a crime. Why don't you just ship it to me and I'll take it off your hands.

    No, wait, I've already got one and it does the same thing.

    I HATE YOU Im still waiting for mine.


    I heard that KIRBY made a deal with the AZTEC god of war Huitzilopochtli back when he first started smithing. The deal was KIRBY would build the GOD a rifle so powerfull it would make the other gods kneel before him AND HE DID IT.

    THATS HOW HE DOES IT

    Its that or he is real picky

    I received my 300 Allen Xpress 3 days before our gun season but couldn't hunt until the last 2 1/2 days because of clients. I mounted the Nightforce scope and eye balled the 100 yard target and shot 3 times to zero and shot 3 more for a 1/2 inch group. Chronoed all 6 shooting 240 Matchkings at 3025 with 96 grains of Retumbo in 10 degree weather with an ES of 5 fps. Told Kirby to just get me something close when accuracy testing because of time issues so I'm sure there is a lot more velocity to be had but it isn't really needed. I then ran a half-ass drop chart off of an online software and proceeded to fire 6 rounds and kill 6 whitetail does from 200-800 yards with one off hand at 250.

    Bob, not quite 3 years, I got 10 more days of doe season to go, and a few tags left. hopefully you'll hear more from me in the next couple weeks.
    Oh, BTW I consulted a couple folks about the sudden loss of death and destruction of my rifle, the physic, his name was AXE, the yoga guy, think he called himself "Yoga guy", and my best friend bubba, they came to the unanamous conclusion that all the envious slobber over the pics I've posted of my rifle is the cause so Y'ALL QUIT LOOKING AT PICS OF MY RIFLE!

    RR,
    Well, maybe the deer was in the process of a step before the bullet hit
