Re: Want to read about my hunt? I shot a buck.

I have killed enough animals with 7mmRM with 130 gr ballistic tip, 150 gr Ballistic tip, 162 gr SST, and 180 gr VLD. I have shot a lot of 175 gr Hornady spire at the range.

The 140 gr BT zero'ed at 200 gr needed only 3.5 moa correction for 475 yards, even though Quickload and Quicktarget calculated 5.25 moa.

The rifle with scope, bipod, sling, ammo, cheek pouch, and rear bag, weighs 11.5 pounds.
The mass that recoils in reaction is more like 7.5 pounds. That load is 11 gr over Hodgdon published max. It kicks like a mule.
