I was low on a deer rifle in the last two weeks and I put together an old 270 remmy ADL with a 2.5-8x36 Leupold just to have something.
On Wednesday eve I was out on an open bog trying to get closer to a forest but the sika hinds were out already and would have
given my game away if I would have gotten any closer. Two stags came out as the light was fading, distance was not easy to judge
and I had no rangefinder along. I left them off saying to myself I need to get my other rifle together.
On thursday I finished the project where I needed measurements from my old sako, cleaned the barrel, put her back in her stock and
scope on. Friday, zero and I was ready for Saturday outing on Sika with much more faith in my long range deer rifle. 20 mag scope,
Lothar Walther match barrel, carbon stock, AICS mag system and drop chart to 500m...
This morning out at first light, rangefinder along, took a while to find a stag but then finally my first for the season. Precise neck shot.
