    Bet that's the last time you do that!

    I'd like to think so. But, probably not. :silly:

    The slo-mo feature is fantastic!

    Are you going to try to reproduce the shot on paper? I'm very curious about why you missed your POA. I don't remember seeing you do that by more than an inch or so.

    I feel better!!!!

    Just recreated the shot at the same distance and rear bag to confirmed zero

    Discovered the gun is impacting a little high and a little left at 55 yards.

    Between that off zero.......the 3in MOA of the load and maybe a little human error (softball)........I can live with the results of the shot. At least I don’t feel like I totally shanked the shot.

    Barrel heat?

    The shot above was cold bore. Just like the shot on the deer. The group above when I zeroed was after a few shots getting the gun dialed in.

    I zeroed last last week and didn’t think I’d bumped the gun since then. So, maybe cold bore drift? Who knows.

    Either way, I ain’t gonna dwell more on it. I’m changing the brake and starting to work up a full bore load now.

    what do you estimate the impact velocity was?

    Meh. Your bad shot was better than many of my good shots. It is a rare opportunity, so it is hard to pass up.

    My first deer. I made a PERFECT neck shot. The deer dropped right in his tracks.

    I also slowed the video down to 1/16th speed, if you want me to post it for youtube. I also edited it for length from just the shot to her hitting the ground
