What kind of rifle is that with the muzzle break? Give us the scoop on it. Looks like you downed a few of those with head shots. Good shootn right there.

Hi.
It is SAKO TRG42 in 300 Win MAG. with Zeiss 6-24x56 scope. Yes I shoot all my deer in the head close to the ear.. Normal range is about 100-300 mtr. You can see more "head shoot" in my thread here in varmint hunting

Wow that looks like a riot and looks like you can get some pretty good distance out of the shooting! Whats your setup for your rifle?
