First blood for the HS Precision 300 SAUM

Took this buck opening morning in NW Oklahoma. 125 yards from Tree stand. 150grn Accubond. 1/2 hole going in and 2" coming out with a lot of damage in between.
When I hit him, his nose hit the dirt and the antlers dug in and flipped him ass over head. I watched him a second, got the round out and looked down to load another and when I looked back at the deer, there was a deer standing right where the one had fallen. I thought, crap, he got up. I dialed up the 3x12 and found the one I had shot in some hay grazer. The other buck was looking at the dead one. Almost put him down.

Re: First blood for the HS Precision 300 SAUM

Thanks guys. Our antler less season opened today for 10 days. I'm going after a flat head with the same pistol or maybe my Ruger Blackhawk Hunter I got from Mark Hampton.
Something will fall before the end of the year I hope.

Our Alternative Weapons Season starts in the morning here in Missouri. I will be using my old Contender chambered in 35 Bullberry with 200 grain Hornady FTX bullets this time.
I have already used my Buck Tag on a 8 point during the Regular Firearms season, so I will be looking for a doe with no fawns with her this time.

Good looking gun, and a nice buck.

Nice shot.
The .300 RSAUM and 7mm RSAUM are my favorites hunting cartridges. I also have three rifles in the .300 . My handloads make them a handful to shoot even in a rifle. I can't imagine them coming out of a pistol like that. (180 grn Nosler ballistic tip over 62.7 grn. IMR 4350 @ 3000 fps).

With a decent brake recoil is not bad at all.
With a great brake, it becomes even more tame to shoot.
Velocity in a SP will be about 300 fps slower than the same chambering with typical rifle length of 24-26 inches

Great shot Hawkeye and a great looking gun! I have really come to appreciate a center grip XP100 as a hunting gun this deer season. The center grip balance actually feels better to me than Contenders or scoped revolvers, which now feel front heavy. Thanks for sharing your hunt.
