Looks like you have had a good year. I'd have that first one mounted. Made my mouth water when I seen them sausages. Good shooting.

the 7X64 brenneke is kind of like a 280 rem.the norma ammo I was using data on the box says 2850 fps with a 175 gr bullet.the truth is way to much for the texas white tail deer.both shot were under 70 yards.

Seemed to send them on their way to their 70 does in the sky quite well.....true you don't get many long shots in Tx...betcha it'd do 400 yds. easy.....
