Default My largest mainframe 8 to date.....

Had a great hunt out in west TX again during the rut. Spotted this buck a little over 250 yards up a ridge and a little horn music he turned and came to about 200 yards and presented a perfect shot. Dropped him in his tracks with my new 308 M40A1 clone that my best friend built this summer. Buck ended up scoring 150 5/8".

Man that’s a great buck and cool rifle. I have the Ed Brown marine sniper addition, that’s what I thought it was when I first saw it. Congratulations on the deer and the rifle.
