Wife shot this buck behind the cabin. Perfect shot behind the shoulder at about 200 yards. Winchester Model 70 featherweight .270 Winchester. Load was 59.5 grains of IMR 4350 with a 110 grain Hornady V-Max, muzzle velocity 3450 fps. Ya I know its a varmint bullet but this antelope didn`t know.

Congrats! :)

Antelope is mighty fine eating, and seems she did a great job, once again.

Very nice! I would very much like to hunt antelope one day. It's always sounded like a fun pursuit.

Good to see lady hunters too. Not many of them out there it seems.

Bullet hit a rib going in and on exit, you can see the exit hole. Performed well for a "varmint bullet". Turned the lungs into jello, death was quick. Zeroed this load for 250 yards, good for a dead on hold well past 300. My wifes limit is 300 yards but I prefer to get her within 200. It was a good hunt. This Pronghorn was alone which was good. It`s easier to stalk a loner than a herd.

Tell ya Paul, that's great performance and good shooting.

I like to keep my shots under 300 yards as well, though I practice often at longer distances. Somehow, in the field, 300 yards often seems like a very long shot.

Again, congrats!

Antelope backstraps are just about the perfect meat as far as I'm concerned.

Regards, Guy
