Congrats on your successful hunt. First time or not he's a dandy lope. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice Antelope. Sounds like you guys had a good time. Do you have a picture of your buddy's antelope? With the straight out horns?

    Great shot Rock! Next time be a little sporty and do it when they're on the run... You haven't lived until you've put down a speed goat on the dead out run

    Mark,
    It would be awesome to be able to hit one on the run. I need to be laying down on the bipod all set up.

    The rifle has been awesome. It shoots like a dream.
    Of course I may sell it and go on to the next project. I am a major tinkerer and once I get one shooting, I can't wait to get another one going.

    Rock, I dont think I would try a running shot at 600 yds. My farthest was about 90... just swung through like shooting at a bird and lead by a body legnth... she piled right up... it was a hoot

    Rock, awesome shot.
    Most areas I hunt have winds in the 15 - 35mph category. It's important to pay attention to up/down drafts and shots across ridges, ravines and canyons. Congratulations and a great photo.

    > The most insane shot on an antelope I've ever seen was a few years ago.

    The day started out terrible. Three stalks, bad luck. The last stalk, the plan was for me to shoot the one standing doe, we stumbled onto the herd at 100yd, and mannaged not to spook them. We managed to set up with just our barrels sticking out of the grass. After my shot the rest would stand up, and the cousin would shoot the buck he'd picked. Almost, drilled the doe, and the cousin missed. The antelope must have been confused somehow, they ran in a crescent that would have run us over. I couldn't get up fast enough. My cousin stood, ran his bolt on a fresh round, the antelope turned just in front of us. The cousin, swung and shot from the hip. He tumbled a nice buck at 17yds, with an amazing neck shot. That gets the adrenalin dumped in your system!
