    Finally got past 1k

    We went to our spot for some more LR hunting this morning.
    The weather was better that last time with a bit of mist & very light drizzle.
    After glassing for a fair while we decided to move to another spot.
    We had been glassing for a wee while then I spotted a Red Deers arse way up the hill.
    I ranged it at 900 ish, we had already decided that 1000+ was the goal for the day so we packed up & went back down the hill.
    On the way down we joked about how guys usually always try to get closer not further away....
    We found a suitable spot and set up, 1045 yards & 22 degrees up.
    We waited until she was in a good position & the 338 Imp broke the silence.
    I regained sight picture just in time to see the 300 grain Gen II hit her & roll her down the hill, then heard the impact





    I had managed to get past 1000

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Shootin Tex! Yards or metres still a bloody good, cold barrel shot. I would have to add another 402 yrds to match that. I most likely never will, as I wont ever own a big thumper or engage an animal that far with little 6.5's I like to use.
