    Not the best video but you get the picture. Only being 800 Yards the tack driving DCM made a clean kill a walk in the park. Cheers Kiwi Greg for building this beast of a rifle!!!

    Recovery only took about 6 hours, two twisted ankles and a shitload of bush bashing

    Shot. Hard case deer seem to like the same old spots.

    What sort of impact velocity at that range out of that big momma?

    cool, had to watch the flight path to find the deer only the one, moving diagonally up and right ?

    i spend most weekends watching vapour trails at those kinds of distances, yours is a hell of a lot flatter than 308

    good effort on recovering that deer !

    Just under 2700fps so about twice the energy of a .308 point blank

    Half the fun with long range hunting is the retrieve! I won't be rushing out to shoot across that gully again though haha.
