I shot this buck just outside of Monterey, LA on Saturday. 316 yards using a 6.5x55 with a 140 Nosler Ballistic Tip over 48.0 gr RL22. MV is a bit over 2800 fps. The deer weighed 225 lbs and grossed 136 2/8. Rifle is a Ruger 77 action with a Schneider barrel, Brown Precision stock and Timmney trigger. My friends call it the "Frankenrifle." The scope is a Leupold VX III with a custom ballistic reticle. He ran 50 yards with a double lung shot. The exit hole was the size of a quarter.
