Young Antelope did not suffer!!!

When the 300 gr. SMK out of a 338-300 RUM hit it at 138 yards it just ended things pretty fast... He still ran about 20 yards but I think he never new he did!

My son Marlon was the tag holder.

I did like the bullet performance specially because if left a pretty decent exit hole, shook the life right out of the animal and did not cause massive internal meet destruction.

Re: Young Antelope did not suffer!!!

Very nice post. And Informative.

I'm kind of grinning though. How often after doing all of the LR things you do with the computer calcs, load development, drop chart development, and on and on and on, and end up with a 138 yd shot at a speed goat?

Marlon was the tag holder, eh. I only suppose you let him do the shooting too.

You're a good team!

Roy you're exactly right, it's horrible to shoot at 138 yards. Then again it shows we're good at short range too!!!

Broz,
Thank you!
----------------------------------------------------------
BigBuck,
It was funny, my son asked and I said set the turret to 2.0 moa and your good all the way to 295 yards without worrying about distance. When he decided to shoot I heard the shot then my sawrovski said 138 yards... Amazing!
We did have a good father son family time though!

Congratulations to Marlon and his coach. Don't let them give you a rough time about distance or software. They just don't know about the special "short range" features that LB3 has.

Re: Young Antelope did not suffer!!!

This should be subtitled as "Shot Placement on Speed Goats" Getting the in and out to line up with that corner of white hair is hard to do. That is my point of aim, the white corner of hair. No ruined shoulders, no salad out the exit hole. Antelope have a very small window bewteen diaphram and shoulders.

This looks perfect to me.
