I thought this might interest members using the various 300 magnums. We returned from our annual hunt in the Alpine National Park in Victoria- Australia. I had the opportunity to harvest a stag at 482 yards with my 300wsm (Fierce Carbon titanium) shooting 175 LRX handloads. The stag only took a few very slow steps after the first shot, I saw the reaction to the impact and knew it was a good shot but took my habitual insurance shot as soon as I was ready. The muzzle velocity is 3010fps behind 64 grains of AR2209. The scope is a swaro Z5 3.5-18x44 with a balistic turret. The photographs show the spot I shot from, the red spot is the area the stag was feeding and the entry points. He is a big bodied stag and so far the venison from him has been great, in the antler department he had not yet developed the tops, despite having decent length and brow tines. So I will keep searching for the thick beamed 28" antlered stags. We found him upside down, so luckily there were three of us to move him, otherwise getting the backstraps would have been difficult. We did not drop his guts so I did not take a look inside to see the extent of the damage, but judging from the fact that he did not even try to run, the bullets did what they were designed to do.
