RE: Deer hoists for use with my truck

My buddy has a simple device called a deer handle. Simply a piece of rope you hook around the neck with a handle. Cost him $10 or so, and with little work he pulled a big doe into his truck. Much...

RE: Accuracy.... groups?

My groups too decreased when using the Accubond. (180 gr) I do not have a chronogaph so going on published data. Guessing around 3000 fps, +or - a little.

That is some amazing shooting Ridgerunner. 660! Wow. Even at 660, and with the BC and windage inconsistencies you are still well within the kill zone.
