Congratulations, meat for the freezer. Would like to hear more details... Distance, load, reaction to the shot.
Shot was at 50yds, running straight away. I didn’t want to wreck any meat so I held high. Took her dead center through the back of the head. The reaction was pretty much what you would figure. My load was the old load I build for my uncles 444.
240gr Speer SP(pre-deep curl)
46.2gr H-4198
Rem brass

I picked up this rifle last week online. Before taking this doe I zeroed it at 7am. Shot the deer at 7:58. My plan is to work up a load with a Speer 270gr deep curl.
