Re: Pronghorn pic..

4 of us went out for the opener on left over tags. We camped out and that may have been the highlight of the trip for me. The other 3 guys all shot their bucks on opening day and I had multiple chance both day 1 and 2 but was in no rush as I was going to return for a couple days later on.
We had a wide variety of rifles, .25-06, .270, .308 and no trip is complete with out a .30-06. Nobody needed to bring more than 1 bullet and the guy with the .25-06 had the longest shot at 350 and change.
We stopped on the way out and shot prairie dogs...22-250, .25-06, .220 Swift and .243. Longest shot went to the .243 @ 505 yards.
I went back out ( just passing through ) this past Monday and after a couple attempts, a very long hike and crawling up nose to nose with a rattle snake, I took the guy pictured above at 242 yards bedded.
Can't wait for next year!!

Re: Pronghorn pic..

thanks for sharing. That sounds like a good hunting trip...less the snake.

I hope to get to WY in the next couple years for Pronghorn. Just got a point this year.

so you end up shooting him with the 30-06?

Re: Pronghorn pic..

Nope, Jack had it right, I'm the .270 guy. 58 1/2 imr 4831 and 130 Nosler Accubond. Everybody else was shooting Nosler Ballistic Tips. I bought this .270, a 700 Rem, to use the action for a .280AI build but at the last minute thought I might better shoot it first. It's usual group is 5/8" and on a bad day 3/4". Oh we'll, into the safe with this one and back to the drawing board....

Re: Pronghorn pic..

Congratulations on a successful hunt!

Keep that 270 intact sir. Buy yourself a Stiller TAC300 or Predator action for the 280AI build. For giggles, consider loading a 110 Barnes in your 270. We use 4350 with 25.5" barrels. Trajectory flat, and kills quick too. That's our goat load.

Re: Pronghorn pic..

The dang thing shoots so well it's unbelievable. I did drop it into an HS Precision stock. I've been looking at Redhawkrifles for the .280AI. Can't explain why I want one so bad but I guess I'm old enough I don't have to explain myself any more. I just like rifles...
