Welcome to BGH! Nice buck you got there. It appears that the heaviest buck on record was 500 lbs. from MN. What state did you shoot yours in? Not uncommon for big bucks around here to hit the 300 + lb. mark. Lot of crops to help that.
You would be right Red.... Just goes to show the complainers that the deer programs are working VERY WELL.... Reduced numbers are creating bigger and healthier deer... PROOF is in the pudding as they say... NICE BUCK!!!
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
