Shot another buck tonight

I went out tonight and used up my late season whitetail tag on a dink. He was pretty far at last light but he looked wide so I decided why not? I already shot a nice one this year and its almost elk season plus it was a fun shot! 686 yards tikka 25-06 100 TTSX in the shoulder

Nice bucks and good shooting! Our rifle season here in Mississippi doesnt start for another week, so I cant wait to get out there. I have a great place that I have set up for a good long range shot, probably at a doe.

Good Shootin Mike!

How'd that bullet perform at 686? Did it go all the way through?

Bruce. It performed perfectly it went all the way through both shoulders. Exit hole was about the size of my thumb. I wish It would have caught under the.ski. I have never recovered a ttsx I would like to have one.. I am very happy with these bullets so far.
