Sorry guys, no MK's here, I loaded a 150gr Failsafe bullet in the .308win on this one.
Field dressed @ 210lbs. One shot to the neck and it was over. Photo is my hunting buddy who got this big guy.

*Forgot to mention - range was <50 yards.

Nice deer...

Shoot them where they show up... if it's 50 yards that's better yet.

If'n youd'a stood up and yelled at him, waited about a minute, you coulda had a long range story.


Looks to be a keeper though.

If he would have done that, he would have had to load up a Match King or two real fast to make the kill at the "longer range."

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
