    Last Weekend Buck

    Due to my girlfriends volleyball team making state, my father being seriously sick over Thanksgiving, Ive had little time to deer hunt. I shot this buck this morning at 375 yds. It's the longest shot I've made on a deer. I used my M70 in 264 Winchester mag with a 130 gr Barnes TSX. Took him through both lungs about 30 minutes after sunrise.

    That's a long shot. Very cool rifle/cartridge.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Congratulations on making the shot.
    Corn field bucks are great tasting.
    I'm glad you got some unwind time.

    Nice shooting, 264 is a real fire breather. I always wondered why it never was as popular as the 7 mm.

    It was widely purported to be a "barrel burner"....never found that to be the case with either of mine....
