    Dont take the title the wrong way. Stalked into the bush on a spooked spiker that morning, caught up to it at the top of a ridge and could only see the back of its head and one spike so i put the crosshair on its brow and "CLICK" bleeping misfire was my only chance at him. Continuting to think i am cursed like the previous year of hunting made my way back to the hut for lunch. Glassing the bush edges that afternoon and i spotted the yearling above in the photo from the hut 300m away so stalked in to about 80 and took a shot taking out the front shoulders. Head shot was out of mercy as i had left my knife behind being the dumbass that i am. So anyway i went for a walk later that afternoon and spooked a mob of 6 , had a shot at a young stag and went high second round misfired third shot knocked him over. Gun will be going to the smith as i dont think its hitting the primer hard enough. Couldnt ask for a better day otherwise.

    Arguing with an Engineer is like Wrestling a Pig in Mud.

    After awhile you realise the Pig loves it.

    Big difference in primer contact. Hornady run some good ammo. Super performance runs best in my tikka

    Nice one mate. Take the bolt apart and give it a good clean inside and oil.
