Today was the opener for the NY regular season, this year I took a field my new Weatherby Vanguard S2 in 7mm Rem Mag, shooting the Barnes Vortex 140 gr. TTSX. The bullet performed flawlessly in taking a nice 8 point shot was around 50 yds. Quartering towards me. The entry was center neck, exit was left side behind the leg.
Here is what is left of the Heart and lungs got to love those Barnes bullets

Nice one. I was out with the 120 gr version but didn't see anything worth shooting. Guy in camp shot a beauty 10 pt that we roughed at 142 7/8". He used a 140 gr X bullet in the 7mm-08. 250 yds. Great bullet performance.
