Re: Young Antelope did not suffer!!!

Very well done. It's always excellent to see a father/son team spend time together.

Although, I have to say, 300 grains seems a bit marginal and maybe too light for a quick, humane kill on an antelope. Didn't you have a .458, or something a bit more appropriate, available? ;)

Two years ago, my youngest got his antelope, he shot him with the 300 RUM using 210 Bergers at 350 yards; the exit crater completely destroyed the whole front leg. I could not even use it for dog meat. A total waste in my opinion. I'm very happy with the results of the 338 Edge and SMK, and I would have to believe that the.458 would probably leave something more edible...

I guess we'll have to start saving for a 408CT build and see if we can get one within 50 yards.

Thanks again for lunch and the gift.
