Re: 300 gr Berger Vs Antelope
I never said it was a bad thing! It happens! And double points to the OP for using a gun with enough snort to knock a critter down even with a less than perfect hit, which i think is especially important on antelope, the little woolies can be darn tough.
It has happened to me sure as it has happened to everybody else before or eventually. Doo-doo happens, and you sure can't help for gear related issues!
On a different note, the Kolpin boots seem to work great for us on bikes, but may not work for a long range mount with bipod, longer bbl or bigger scope than "usual" hunting rifles. I have used them to carry a rifle while working in the mountains, but never tried to put my hunting setup in one so don't know if they make them big enough.
