338 Lapua draws first blood

My new McMillan 338 Lapua EOL LRH draws first blood at 487 yards. Little big for Antelope and the only Antelope tag I could draw this year was Doe/Fawn so it was gun of choice. Best gun I have ever owned and with help of Bob Beck and other ex snipers at the McMillan school made the job an easy task at 487 yards would of been longer but Antelope were at edge of field so did the best I could. This one is mine but you can get yours at Extreme Outer Limits or McMillan.

    You have good taste (not the animal or the rifle) but the toolbox and fuel tank. I have the same exact setup. I carry farm diesel in mine. With a hand pump. I can't get the 12 volt ones to las more than a year at best.

    Nice rifle btw.

    Maybe I'll get busy again have two elk and one deer left to go this year. Going Bighorn sheep hunting Sept 1, 2013 not my tag just to help a friend and his daughter that both drew area 5.
