Job well done.
So far I have not got First Blood with my Nosler M48 in 6.5 Creedmoor.
Antlerless Opens Tomorrow. I will probably skip it and wait on Alternative Weapons Season that opens just before Christmas.
Hopefully the Deer will be back to normal by then. I am not sure where the deer went, but about the time acorns dropped they got very thin around here. They must have moved to deeper woods.

Again Nice Deer,

Bob R

Very nice - congrats! What’s some of the load details/performance?


It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger squeeze.

Load is AA1680 38,0 grs and Nosler 240 HP

This group was 100 yds and when I went to turn the magnification from 7 power to 2 1/2 the ring was frozen! Scope going back to Burris

I am surprised you had a problem with a newer Burris. I am sure they will make it right.
I killed one of my 30+ year old ones, and they promptly sent me a new one with much clearer glass.

Nice deer. Have not got one with my 445 barrel yet but did with the 414 this year. Maybe next season on 445. Love it when they go right down or at least within site.
