    Very nice , thats alot of funds tied up right their.

    Sounds like yall did realy well with the 7WSM's the other day , I like to see the Kwik-Klip bottom metal being used seems like it workes realy well on Nate's 7WSM.

    S where are pics and vid of the coyote and goat kills?

    Here is my hunt from last friday. Nate from SSG was videoing. we are hunting out in western ND. sorry for the sound it was blowing hard around 18 at 11 0clock. the goat runs of and goes down.the shot hit within 2 inched of my aim. it entered right behind the ribs and exited right behind the offside sholder.

    now toby all those clips full of rounds is a little pessimistic especially when I know how well you shoot. Way to go.

    I'll have to agree with you on the camera skills ( or lack of) I was trying to figure out how to use the tri pod. it was tight and chunky. I would put pressure on it and all of a sudden it would just go! It didn't help that it was blowing 18 MPH either. my latest idea is yo mount a video camera on a stock with a bi-pod.. this I am familiar with. then i should be able to track better!?

    Here are a few other pix of our hunt and the 180 Berger's and it performance on coyote and antelope. The Coyote was at 300 and the antelope buck was at 150.

    thanks nate for posting those pictures.

    The picture of the buck is my cousin and his first buck goat ever. he was alittle excited. we actually had a chance to shoot this buck at 60 yards running broad side. Chad had so much fever he was shooting at the ground 10 ft in front of us for the first two shots. then when he realized it he was shooting 10 ft behind then infront. the goat was able to get around the hill on us. we circled and was able to find this goat behind another hill. Nathan and Chad were able to sneak over the hill and make a 150 yard shot with nates shooting sysem. as you can see from the skinned animal the 180 berger did substachal damage.

    as far as the coyote goes thats a story that only nate can awnser.....
