Posted: Oct 4, 2012

I shot this "Spork" spike/fork on opening day with my Savage Model 99E .308 Winchester using a 165 grain SST in my own handloads. We hunted for about 4 hours seeing lots of does but no bucks. I noticed a doe all by herself and when I walked to get closer this young buck stepped out. I shot him at 275 yds standing on a steep uphill angle while he was walking away. Thanks to Hornady, one shot was all it took!

Thanks Hornady for making my 1st deer hunt a success!
