Hunting a wheat field this morning with my 17" 7mm-08 A.I. Doe at 285 yards, vitals, did the stiff leg fall over.

Spike at 265 yards, quartering away, vitals, made a 20 yard lap, and piled up. Maybe I can get autopsy pics to load, later.

The muzzle velocity on my load is 2640 fps.

How does it perform on deer sized stuff under 100 yds?

On the quartering deer, this morning @ 265 yards. It entered on the last rib left side, passed through both lungs and came out the center of the right shoulder.
Entry 3/4", exit 1 1/2". So a diagonal pass through. The lungs were liquid.

I'd load pics if I could.

Good to hear. Iím planning on throwing things together enough to shoot a couple does with the 175ís. Theyíll be going just a bit faster than that to see what higher impact velocities do to them.
