Looks like the Bullet did its job and better than I would expect.

yeah its got a 5" shade.
I thought about the range compared to the other deer taken but didnt think it was that much further to do what Tiny says but its got to be the reason - loss of velocity just enough to take what juice it had to not drop her in her tracks.
I was leanin that way,just didnt realy think it far enough to do it.
Here is a pic from where I was sitting to the other side of the hollow.Deer was around center of the pic bout halfway up the other side.




All jokin aside I could not have made the shot withought this rig.A.O was at 200 and it was on 20x when I touched it off - after making adjustments while trying to keep her in sight AND tell the boys to be quiet \:\) - I had two of the boys with me at the time only one of them could see the deer on the other side of the hollow .They were hootin and hollering when I shot and got a big kick out of seeing it all happen.

on a side note...the rifle holds 4 #1 and leading off was the 130 gr Speer HP.....only because I have tested them on paper and in the field BUT - jes cause I am what I am I reckon \:\) his 3 buddies waiting for a GO signal were the 125 TNT's and by book spec should be lopin along at 2900 and change.I didnt lead off with them because I havent fired the first one yet from the rifle and didnt want to go afield with anything untested.But once the 130's are gone the plan will be to have them tested up and more than likely stoked to all Speer says they can "safely" fly at without fear of "premature detonation" BWAAAHAHAHAHAHA !!!
They will be field tested on yotes and paper leading up to next fall.
