I shot a doe this afternoon at 419 yards. It is a new personal best for me on a deer. Even though I had promised myself I would wait for a buck, she taunted me by providing a beautiful broadside target. I wanted to break 400 yards this year so I took it. The sound of a solid hit is so gratifying. She made it about 50 yards into the brush, but left a blood trail Ray Charles could have followed.
I used a McMillan Signature .280 with a Leupold 3.5-10x CDS shooting a 140 Accubond over 54.3gr of IMR 4350 in WW cases. That set-up accounted for 8 this year, including 3 over 300 yards.
A couple more days til the end of the season. I am glad I got that out of my system. Bucky watch out.
