2 for 2 on bulls in 2012

Helped my longtime friend work up a long range load for his .308. We put our loads to good use this fall. My buddy took a heavy 5x5 herd bull at 460 yards. I took a younger 6x6 satellite bull at 320 yards.

    Good deal...congrats! That will put a lot of good eating meat in your freezer. I killed a 5x5 with a bow this year and i know that my freezer is full.
