I drew out for Utah Vernon West Desert limited Entry tag. We hunted for 5 days and spotted many mature deer. Hoping to find 170+ buck. I shot a 6.5 x 284 Norma savage predator max 1 loaded with 140 grain A max shooting a 3/4 inch MOA.

We spotted a nice Buck bedded under a cedar tree. He was at 561 yards out. I dialed the scope to that yardage and sent the bullet on it's way. The buck droped in his bed. He was a 3x4 and 25 wide. Not that giant we were hoping for but a good buck.

We have had really good luck with the A-Max on deer and Elk. The bullet performed great and has done in many deer and elk.
