    Went out today to try to fill my antelope tag. Found a nice buck and decided to take him, but he kept walking and had to wait for about 10 min. before he stopped. Nick ranged him at 925 yds. and I started clickin'. Nick gave me the go ahead and I squeezed the trigger and sent the bullet. Nick could see the bullet through the spotting scope and knew it was a good shot before the bullet even got there. He was quartering away a bit and I hit him back just a little. After the Berger hit, he turned towards us and walked maybe 25 yds and fell over.

    Great shootin' and great pics.

    Ya gotta love those Hybrids.

    Broz is feeling the pressure. Hope he doesn't "choke" on the shot.:D

    Very nice shot placement, and thanks for sharing the first bit of information on the down range performance of the new 338 Berger.

    Yup... Your turn Jeff. :) Hope to see a few pics and learn some more about the on-game performance of the Berger after your hunt(s).
