    Little sister flat out hammered this joker at 520 yards with my custom .243 shooting 95gn Berger VLD'S scope is a 6.5-20 Leupold with a custom turret matched to my load. Im sure im gonna get bashed but bash away I know what this gun and shooter was capable of and the Berger bullet performed flawlessly.*[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Congrats to your sister for her muley, and shooting.

    As far as I am concerned, someone that wants to bash this combination is flat out ignorant.

    +1....your 95grain VLD going 3136 is a deer killer to 700yards IMHP.

    No bashing here! That's a dead mulie if I've ever seen one!
    6mm have their place, and it looks like your sister took her time, placed the bullet EXACTLY where it had to go!
    Big stuff has its place, but the little stuff gets it done too. Deer aren't bullet proof!

    Its actually a factory Remington Barrel.
    My load is:
    Win cases
    42gns of H4350
    Win LRM primers
    95gn Bergers
    I cant remember case and overall case length off the top of my head.
