After driving 700 miles on Friday to be set up early Saturday for opening day, I was disappointed to hear what sounded to be a small army engaging the Taliban at dawn very close to my proximity. I decided to relocate for the afternoon hunt after lunch and got set up about 1:30. Within 30 minutes this bruiser walked by at 165yds.

I was using a new Kimber 84M chambered in 308W armed with Hornady 165g SST hand loaded into Hornady Match brass. I've never used the SST in the field and wasn't sure what to expect, but I can tell you that one shot stopped him in his tracks. He didn't take another step.

Thank you Hornady!
