Thread: First Buck for the 6.5

    First Buck for the 6.5

    Well finally picked up the 6.5x55 yesterday.
    Got the meopta mounted on top and set out to run in the barrel. A box of 20 later and I set about fine tuning the zero.

    Headed for one of the high seats where fallow had been seen feeding the evening before....but only does.

    Tried a different seat early this morning but again, only does.
    Moved onto another seat for the final hour. Was about to call it a day when 2 young fox were heading back from the nights excursions. Managed to get them both.

    Gave it another half hour and I heard some crashing in the woods behind me....a nice roe buck came bounding out onto the ride.....only about 40 yrds. Dropped on the spot.

    Yeah made a mess...both wounds you see are exit wounds. No finishing off required i can assure you.
    The foxes were taken before the roe from the same seat and i was in two minds whether to leave them as not to compramise a chance at a buck. But on keepered land....needs must
