Congrats.

What bullet? Velocity? Range? Where did you hit her?

fusion 129 grain 300 yards 2400 velocity]
Sounds like you did well then.

I've noticed that none of the game I shot that fell dead worried nearly as much about the load or caliber as we do here though HA!

Many years ago I carried a 25-06 Ruger #1 as my "Antelope Gun" and had very similar results shooting 120gr hornady's.

just read an article in a deer hunting mag on best calibers for deer. .25 caliber dropped the most deer, either in their tracks or only ran 16 yards or so.
