    While the deer and shot my not be impressive to most, it was pretty special to me.

    I have always just been a waterfowler and never taken the time to deer hunt. I decided this year was the year to bag one. Over the course of this past year I bought myself a rifle setup and some reloading equipment, read more of this forum than any one man should and practiced quite a bit.

    I worked up a load using Sierra GameKing 165gr bullet using 43gr of h4895 in winchester brass.

    Long story short, I bagged my first deer. Made the shot at just a touch over 300 yards.

    Equipment used
    Remington 700 SPS Varmint .308
    Bushnell Elite 3200 3x9
