You'll have that from time to time, at least you got him without a long drawn out tracking scenario, especially with no snow to help the process.

Thanks for the support fellas, It seems that the video has created a "stir" because of the lack of shot placement, taking to far of a shot, etc, etc, etc. Alot of people dont realize thats what happens sometimes when you hunt. Thanks again for the support!!!! ;)

Don't sweat it tippz the ones that are complaining about the shots have pry nevewr fired a gun of any kind in their whole lives so there for have no knowledge of what they are talking about.

You did a great job in my opinion. good luck next time out buddy. :cheer:

Don't worry about it, still a very good kill. :cheer:

People think I'm paranoid because I own guns.
If I own guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant"
is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist ".

Good shooting, nonetheless. Tree huggers will never understand. The rest of us understand the excitement thingy.....

Anyway, I watched the video a couple of times and it seems your first & second shots were similar, so I'd suggest it wasn't your "excitement" or rifle skills that kept you from making the "1 shot kill".

May I offer this: It seems like you were shooting a little down hill (maybe 20deg to 30deg.) so your POI would be HIGHER than POA. If that was the case, you might consider (this is not a criticism, but rather a ballistic analysis)..... :det:

Where I live (environmentally speaking) shooting 750g AMAX at 650 yds (normally a 95" drop with a 100yd zero) and shooting a little down hill, one would need to shoot a little LOW, to make such a "one shot" kill.

With a 20deg. slope one would shoot 6" LOW (95" x .060 = 6"); or with a 30deg. slope one whould shoot 13" LOW (95" x .134 = 13").

It seems to me your first two shots were between 6" to 12" high (since I'd suspect you were shooting for center mass), so I'd offer that it wasn't your shooting mechanics, but rather just a "slope issue". Anyway, it seems like that was the case, by watching the video.

PS: The "lope" didn't suffer......Good video, also....

Thanks for the pointer shadow. I had ranged the antelope at 650 and dialed for 630 to account for the downhill angle. Unfortunatly, it was not enough. I appreciate the info. :cheer:
