8-point shot December 2016 with a 6.5 x 55 AI that I chambered with a home made reamer.

I didn't want to shoot it as my niece was in a stand ~ 100 yds away with her mentor. But this buck was too big not to shoot, and she had an awesome first hunt.

How about this?

Hey Doble, hope this helps. With that ultra wide grin can tell she's a proud one.

Thanks, Az!

 

How'd you do that?

 

I'll try a different approach with the cartridge pic: Nope.

I'll try Photobucket: http://s1378.photobu...t]=1&sort=1&o=0

 

Well then, the "Direct" option on Photobucket = success!

That's a 129 gr Hornady SST that was doing ~ 2900 fps. Deer was about 30 yds away. I didn't want to shoot it because I wanted Mia to have a chance. But when he got so close... I couldn't pass it up. He came on my right so I had to shoot from the treestand left handed. His shoulder became available between two trees and BAM.

The bullet scrambled heart & lungs but didn't exit - it blew up inside the chest. He ran ~ 50 yds. I've had these SSTs since they first came out about 10 years ago. I've read the first batches were soft. They're damn accurate though! But I'll be using the 125 gr Partitions next year.

Rifle is a beat up Yugo M48 with one of the Mauser barrels Midway carried back in the day. It's my "ugly gun" that I don't worry about banging up.
