NV 041-042 Speedgoat

New to the forum...Thought I'd share a photo of my 2011 Nevada pronghorn shot in zone 041-042 during the early rifle hunt. Took this guy high off a ridge in the Seven Troughs Range at 329 yds with my Rem 700 Varmit Special chambered in .308 shooting custom loads topped with 168 berger VLD bullet. Stock is a MPI Thumbhole and scope is a Leupold Mark IV. Saw lots of goats up high in most all the ranges in the zone. Had to really look at quite a few dinks before seeing some good ones.

I had the same area and posted here. Did he run after the hit? Did you recover the bullet? What is your load and chrono speed?

I did 4 different days of pre season spotting.
