    Don't laugh now at the body size... :D

    Local LR group... 307 Long Range... put together a little challenge, Wyoming style. You get 10 rounds in 10 minutes on a pocket-sized buffalo at 1000 yards. Pretty fun deal. Hardest part was seeing the hits when a shooter was on the buffalo. Fun and a little different for a change.

    I got mine on the second shot. Our angle shooting up the draw in relation to the wind made for some wild cold-bore first-shots, mine included. Drove the point home for the need to know how wind reacts to geography.

    Rifle:
    Savage Model 12, 6mm x 47 Lapua, 30" barrel, Leupold VXII 6.5-18x42, Bell & Carlson Stock
