I put the bow down and grabbed the rifle on this past cold Friday morning, and Iím sure thankful I did. Sitting in my pop up on a ridge I had a great West Texas view where I could see for days. About 8:30am I catch a deer about 400yds out. By the time I get my glass on the deer I notice there is another one following closely behind. That happened to be this dude trailing his date. They worked their way to about 300yds and then slowly worked further away again. At that point I realized the shot was now if it was presented. At 315yds he gave me a broadside shot and I took it. The Tikka T3 in .308 hit the mark and he dropped where he stood. This old bucks teeth were worn down to nothing. Ironically a 160 class 10pt presented the same 300yd shot 2 weeks earlier at the same location but I decided to be patient hoping he would close the distance a bit but he never did. I wasnít going to let another opportunity pass me by. Iím hopeful the 10 and I will meet again soon.

Very nice old West Texas buck. I love my Tikka T3 - an absolute tack driver! Great job to you at that yardage as well sir.

Funny you ask. Some ol boy named Chad at Custom Reloads of Dallas whipped me up a hundred rounds of 155gr Hornaday A-Max about 4yrs ago. Iím finally down to my last half dozen or so rounds. Itís about time to re-up. Expect an order soon. Those rounds have performed great. I donít know all the expansion vs penetration stuff...I just know the gun and round are deadly accurate. Thank you sir!
