well i took my .243 out hunting this year and got it bloody for its first time. i took the one on the left at an amazing 35 yards. .243 100gr corlokt passed right through him leaving a nasty exit wound. my dad shot the button buck at about 80 yards with the 06. 30 min apart from each other on the last day. I had a good shot at a 5x4 but he walked into the sun as i was about too shoot and i didnt want to be skunked for the year again so i took the spike on the last day.
