Re: The Gambler ram
The ram had bases that measured a little over 15". His 2nd's were 14", then 11 7/8", and 7 7/8" on his fourths. His long horn went 34" and his short was 31". His good horn doubled, he goes about 166". B&C measurement will probably end up being around 162" because of the deductions and the big chip in the 2nd quarter on the one side.
The gun was Uncle B's 300 winnie semi-custom. We had the 338 Thunder and the 338 Moag with us too but never got either out of their cases. If we had been in the same spot the day before, we probably could have used the Moag to kill the other mid 160" ram from the road but it didn't work out that way.
I thought seriously about taking the Thunder up the mountain as I am much more familiar with it than UB's 300 win mag but as 7mmrhb pointed out, I didn't want to abuse Megan's shoulder that bad and I also knew that if she made a marginal hit, the Berger's would still probably kill the ram on site better than the 300 SMK would. But I don't know which would have made the biggest exit hole!
If it's not far, it's boring.
