Last night at sunset this boy showed up in front of our cabin. My wife busted him from about 40 yards. The .257 Weatherby at close range knocked him flat. The Hornady 100 grain interlock at 3650 fps hit him high in the shoulder an never exited. If there`s any thing left of it I`ll post it here

Nice deer. That's a nice little get away cabin too. Looks like a nice place to recharge your batteries from the regular grind.

WOW!!
That looks like the first deer I shot with my 25-06 with a 100 gr bullet at 3500 FPS at 40 yds, Great shot!

Bravo!

Proud of her. Good to see ladies out on the deer pastures
getting game. Meat on the table. That's what it's all
about.

Do pass along my most sinsere congratulations.

Thanks guys, I`m proud of her to. She has become the meat provider for the family. It didn`t happen over night but over the last few years she`s came a long way. There were a few misses and blown opportunities that tried my patience.   
Anyway the 100 grain Hornady Interlock did exit. So kudos to the bullet at high velocity.
I know we sometimes over analyze bullet performance as dead is dead.
She has a antlerless tag to fill and then were done for the year
