    Wasn't long range, But he's my biggest one yet. Heres my Black Friday 12pt. 300gr. SMK did the trick, off-hand at 24yds!! with a 19lb rifle out of a treestand. Was watching a field and he snuck up behind me. He'll be on my wall.

    Nice buck.

    On another note, I shot your EDGE at Quantico one time. As I recall, it had a muzzle brake on it at the time. Have you changed something? or am I misremembering?

    Congrats to a nice buck and rifle.

    Do you mind if I ask who built your rig. Can you also provide the specs?

    That is a really nice sized deer.

    How much windage did you dial in before the shot. :D

    That's a fine looking buck! Congratulations!

    I fully understand the irony. In '07 I was watching a buck out at about 440 yards, waiting for a shot opportunity (he was just across the property line) when a decent 4x4 mulie walked up behind my haystack "blind." I shot him at about 30 yards. Maybe 30... If I stretch it a little...
