    The 25-06 came through again with a one-shot kill at a bit beyond 350 yards.

    Rifle & load have stayed the same for quite a few years now:

    Rem 700 CDL, pillar bedded, free floated, trigger set on 3#
    Leupold 6x (42mm obj)
    Nosler 115 gr Ballistic Tips, loaded to 3150 fps via Retumbo

    I didn't dope the wind well enough, and my shot landed farther back in the lungs than what I'd like, but took both lungs and he was down quickly.

    Hunted in northeast Wyoming, on my favorite ranch. Lots of area for hunting, and very few people around.

    Best of luck to you all!

    Guy

    Congrats, I'm headed to Montana in a couple of weeks for an elk and deer hunt. Seeing your buck got me even more excited to go!
