Default Scimitar Oryx vs. 6.5 Grendel

We sat for three hours this morning watching him waiting for a shot with no luck. He walked off and we put a spot and stalk on him. Finally we had a shot and the Grenny hit him hard. He did a 180 and was DRT.

Thx guys. Used Hornady 123 gr A-MAX. He was quartering away a little so I tucked it into the crease just behind the shoulder.

I have one of the screamer 6.5 bolt guns. If I ever do get an AR it'll be a Grendel.
