Re: What gun for 2011 antelope hunt ?

I have used a 240 Wby with 115 Berger past 1K twice, a 257 Wby with 130 gr Wildcat RBBTs past 1K and a 7AM with 200 gr Wildcat RBBT.

The chief issue is to judge the wind and range correctly. Ranging antelope is a difficult issue because the land is so flat. Judging wind is even more difficult. Killing them is not difficult if you can hit them.

Sniper2, LTLR doesn't , Mrs LTLR says that is her rifle. Incredible shooter. That rifle will honestly put three shots through the same hole at 100 yrads about every time. A big hole, but the same hole. And she has proved it. Miss Phoebe is a heck of a shot but stays quiet cause she doesn't like to show me up. I guess we both got to stay straight cause both our wives can shoot to dang good.

I am doing well. I have a XP100R in 260 Rem that shoots Berger 130s very well. I am going to try to kill an antelope at over 500 yards with it this fall.
