Re: Shooting Stats

As requested. I have good data for 24 animals I have defiantly shot with a 300blk. The only hunting round I use is a 110gr V max. The only thing I have changed is the powder and weight to extract more speed and accuracy. I can't tell you how many times I've had a exit wound but i do remember a large...

Re: Shooting Stats

Hey Walker, If you have time, it would be interesting to know, and very helpful for a lot of people, things like average weight of the animal, bullet used and shot placement. There is so much poor information and ideas out there still about the cartridge. People think you should be able to shoot th...

Shooting Stats

So since I do a little bit of hunting and night shooting for Red deer I've starting running a note book with observations. What works, weather, times and kills, seen deer etc. I sat down and did a data crunch tonight and some interesting reading and what I thought were patterns for success might not...

Re: How big is to big???

You here that boys? The down under man with a plan doesn't pull out the 308 until 300. Man has killed more deer than blue tongue is telling you what it will do in capable hands - done. Go NZ! Where is your dime shot Waliker? Or your rubile or monkey nut, whatever coin y'all use that is around a 1/2...

Re: How big is to big???

You'll be just fine with a 110gr.
110gr V max are my go to load and they've killed near 100 red deer. Big heavy stags, hinds, fawns all don't often take another step. 300m is about as far as I sling them on deer now, that's my comfort killing distance. Any further I pull out the .308.

Re: Out there doing it still

Been hammering the hills hard for 2 4 day weekends running now. Heard plenty of stags. Even stalked and roared in one to 20m. Had my 9 year old daughter with me for that. She was shaking with adrenalin after that big fella going nutts so close. She come with me Saturday for another walk in the spot ...

Re: My shortest roar/rut ever and a new first

great hunt! too bad about the knee. why the first on shooting a Chamois with subs? are the shots usually too far? In Austria where they originated from the 243 is the smallest caliber allowed to be used and here in New Zealand most hunters use large caliber rifles for distance and kinetic energy. A...

Re: Out there doing it still

Dam that’s a big print. No way I would be up there with a bolt action. Nice pics of the country. I want to go on a hog hunt some day. Another back surgery coming up so maybe next year head down to Texas or Florida. Have my 300BO set up with my thermal so a night shoot would be fun. I'm thinking abo...

Out there doing it still

http://i65.tinypic.com/fxqtco.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/zwktv7.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/256fcrk.jpg We've been out doing some pre roar (rutt) scouting. The difference is we can hunt while doing it. The ridge is high enough you can see most of the Southland plains, all the way to the coast and 1 ...
