I got back from my yearly cow hunt in New Mexico...we had a blast. I do not have the time or inclination to give a long story so here is a short synopsis of the animals taken with the monster Kirby built me. I will update when everyone on the trip emails me the photos they took, I forgot the camera. Elk one and two were drilled at 514 from one position, neither ran more than 20 yards. Elk number three was the last tag of the group I traveled with and was 1187 yard one shot kill. She stayed on her feet a while but never took one step before tipping over. Elk numbers 4 and 5 were taken by some great guys we met in camp, both at 740 yards. Everyone who took a turn behind the big gun was just amazed at how well behaved she was and that she could be so accurate. There were two misses on the trip, a 1890 yard coyote facing dead on got luck not to take a side step to the left as elevation was perfect. The bullet struck so close that my spotter at first thought it was a pass through strike that he saw. The other miss was because it had been a while since one of the shooters had shot the gun and forgot how touchy the trigger is, causing him to shoot over the head of a 1465 yard cow. After the cow ran just to confirm the accuracy of the drop chart and wind read he busted a basketball sized rock at 1450 with one shot. There are a lot of truly great rifle builders out there, IMO Kirby Allen is one of the best. Thanks again for a great gun Kirby.
