I'm kinda wondering what the longest successful shot you have ever made on any animal was. My longest shot was a 200 yard deer that I shot through the neck with the second shot. I was using a Remington 700 in 7x57, loaded with 140 grain BTs. The first shot, heaven only knows why I tried it offhand, with the scope on 3x..... The second shot, I sat down on my bucket, and steadied myself. Aimed for the head, with the scope still on 3x. And that time, the deer went down in quite a hurry. I suspect that the neck hit is due to variations in power settings on my scope. Sometime I should check that out. As far as my aiming for the head, I am hunting for meat and instant put downs. If you don't agree with me, then we agree to disagree. Moving on... What is the longest successful shot you have ever made, and what equipment were you using? Thanks.
