I know it's not long range to a lot of ya'll but it's my first kill at 430 yards.

One shot.

Looks good and dead to me. Congrats. Meat for freezer.

I was holding on a deer this season with a sporter weight rifle at 250 yards, watching the cross hairs dance all over... thinking, I've got no business taking that shot.

400+ yards long range to me!

Good shooting.

That 6.5/284 Norma is a screamer and shoots so flat. Maybe just the supersonic shock wave alone could kill that deer on a near miss. :eek:)

I shoot 6.5 Creedmoor, a much tamer but still flat shooting cartridge.
