Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / 143 gr ELD-X & Antelope
« on: October 21, 2018, 07:07:44 AM »
Just returned from a quick one day Antelope hunt in Wyoming
The 6.5-284,, 143 ELD-X performed perfectly. Took the high shoulder shot at 354 yards. Breaking both shoulders and exiting
It was a all day hunt, the unit l hunt  is mix of private and public. Located 3 herds with good for area bucks. One herd moved to a spot that there was no chance.
The second herd started moving in the afternoon in a direction that l would have a chance, hiked in about 1/2 mile and setup. They were 700 yards and moving my way when another group of Mule deer hunters spooked them back onto private. That's public land hunting
That left me with one herd and when l checked they had moved to public land. Made the stalk and the shot. Made it back to the truck as the sun was setting.
Reminded me of one of my favorite shows on TV, Under Wild Sky's

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Friend's Antelope hunt
« on: October 07, 2018, 06:05:21 AM »
Went with a friend after work yesterday. He took this Antelope.

This was the first hunt with his new long range/hunting rifle.
Custom 300 win mag, nightforce scope, ELD-X bullet. He has shot this rifle to 1000 yards.

 Neither of us are long range hunters, his comfort range is farther than mine but still not considered long range now days
After a couple stalks he took the shot at 209 yards

Has anyone tried these yet?
Sierra has re/engineered their matchking bullet to a larger hollow point and put a tip on it for hunting.

They are available in .24,.26,.27,.28,and 30 calibers

I know the sierra matchking in my benchrest rifle is really accurate
