Here is a nice whitetail that Walker Reggear shot at 973 yards with a 300 RUM I built him. You may remember Walker from Send It Vol 1 where he shot a nice buck at just over 500 yards. Walker is an accomplished long range shooter and it shows here. By the way don't feel bad but he is only 13.

Way to go Walker. Nice buck and GREAT shot.:) I think we might be seeing him in some future videos to come out of Idaho.

That's Awesome. I'll admit that the segment with Walker in Send It Vol. 1 was one of my favorite parts.

Shawn, can you post the specs of the rifle, scope and load Walker was using?

Thanks for sharing this story.

At some point in his LR career, Shawn needs to write up Walker as a feature article subject.

Encouragement and motivation for the old guys (over 13 yrs).
