Montana Buck meets nosler LRAB












lots of time looking for bucks this year, son took one, wife took a little whitetail buck,,

this morning was out watching rutting bucks shove each other and chase does,,

was watching this buck for a 1/2 hour, out on some hard accesible state land, decided good enough for me for what I have seen,
about a mile stalk presented a 390 yard hard quartering away shot
7saum shooting the nosler 168 LRAB at 2950 muzzle velocity
off side shoulder completely destroyed, no bullet to recover


1.5 hour drag, and home time, good eats in the future

Nice buck, looks like earned it.
That would be my bullet of choice in my SAUM if we could get them over here. So will be using the standard AB 160grn I think.

What powder you using?

Good buck! So, how do you like the performance of the Nosler LRAB? Is this the first kill with it? How's the accuracy?
