I got my second long range kill yesterday. This one was 2 yards closer than the first one but he's a lot better buck. One 105gr AMAX outta the 243 did the job at 593 yards. Its the same rifle that I used on the buck in my other thread. I recovered the bullet just under the hide on the off side after a trip thru the near shoulder and the lungs. Recovered weight is 53.6 grains. I wouldn't want to push the 243 much beyond 600 yards on deer as its starting to run outta steam on out there.
