Savage MSR-10 in .308. The gun did its job, I was just super nervous and kept pounding him until I was sure he was dead. The gun shoots great though. With SMK's I can easily do a .75 group at 100.

How has the water been since October? I did the first bow hunt and was curious. The spot I had nilgai in range should be fine either way. Just may affect how they travel to that area though.
