    634 yd spiker

    I went out last night to try and get my first deer for the year. I have had a few chances this year but haven't taken the shot for a number of reasons. But last night it all came together.
    Rob and I headed out to watch a large clearing at the top of a face. About 7pm three deer, two hinds and a yearling came out.
    Ranged them at 634 yds. Conditions were
    634 yds
    -9 degrees angle
    1006 mBar
    18oC
    40% humidity
    4 mph wind from 112 degrees (from over right shoulder)

    I was using my 7mm Rem Mag shooting 168 Bergers at 3070 fps.
    Shooter said 10.7 MOA up and 0.9MOA right.
    Dialled that in to the scope and waited for the yearling to offer a broadside shot. It finally did, and i dropped it with one shot. Rob managed to video it but that will take a while to put up, so here are some photos in the meanwhile.


    The spiker with my rifle, Rem 700 Trueflite No 4 26"7mm rem mag,Leupold VIII 4.5 -14 x 40 LR, stock made by me


    Me and the spiker

    Fantastic Stug, great shooting, well done.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Self taught, read heaps from Greg Duley and Longrangehunting.com Then it is a matter of putting in the effort. I am a believer in Shawn Carlocks idea of rock hunting. That and being a gadget/gear freak helps.
