    MOA Maximum, 14" barrel, chambered in 308 Win.
    Hornady TAP Ammo (168 grain A-Max).
    I think this is the first time I have ever used factory ammo on a game animal.

    I see that you leave no room for error!!!

    What equipment are you using to get "rock steady" in that shot?

    Using the new HD BOG-POD by BOG-GEAR, combined with a little attachment called the Sargent Sniper Rest. since it is so short and if you are using a bi-pod in conjunction with it (That is the key. Also don't use a pod-loc). It is a little slow on the set-up though. I also use Bog-Gear's PSR top with this tripod for handgun.
    The PSR pans a lot easier but is not rock solid like the SSR is when used with the BOG-OOD and bi-od.

    I kept having to rotate the tri-pod as the doe was moving (with the SSR), since the back leg must come straight back for it to be used the way we set it up. The other two legs have to be at 3 & 9 O'Clock for it to be rock steady, since the bi-pod legs have to be up against the front of the Bog-Gear Bog-Pod legs.
    I will post some pics once I get USB drive from my hunting buddy. He took all the pics and it will be easier to see what I am talking about.

    500+ yard shots from the sitting position are very doable with this set-up.
    I may take it out to a grand on steel in the future just to show how steady it is.

    Nicely Done Ernie! Both Times!:)

    That EliminatorIII seems to be well worth the extra money over the original.
    Dad just bought one a few weeks ago, so far he really likes it.

    Still plum flat amazes me what you do with a handgun.
