My new 7mm Dakota XP-100 finally drew blood earlier in the month on a management mule deer.  Shot was under 200 yards, from a double kneeling position using Bog Gear with their now discontinued PSR Top.  175 ELD-X put the buck down in less than 40 yards from the shot (which has been kind of the same thing happens every time-so far).  I quartered the buck in the field, so I do not have an autopsy report like some give here in great detail.  Enjoyable day for sure.  This XP shoots stupid good.  When stack shots on top of each other from 750 yards on out, it kind of make you feel good about your XP!
Chris Rhodes/Bayside Custom Gunworks built a hummer on this one!

Nice Ernie real nice. Both the pistol and the buck.

Being a lifelong Whitetali hunter if that’s a management deer what does a good one look like?

Hey Skip, Here is a public land buck.

Nice gun and deer. What type of scope do you use Ernie? That doesn't look like the typical long eye relief scope.

 Very nice critter, Ernie.  Good to hear from you.
