I posted inquiring about some of our member's longest handgun varmint kills and got quite a few interesting responses. Does anyone want to share their longest deer kill using a handgun? My longest is 295 yards using my H-S Precision 7 saum with a Burris 3X-12X Ballistic Plex.

I SHOT A PRONGHORN AT OVER 300 YARDS WITH A 6.5 JDJ CONTENDER, AND A SMALL HOG AT 276 YARDS WITH AN RPM XL IN 356 WINCHESTER, BUT MOST OF THE TIMES, WHEN DEER HUNTING, I CHOOSE STANDS/BLINDS WITH THE FEEDER AT AROUND 100 YARDS AWAY, AND I DO NOT RECALL ANY SIGNIFICANTLY FAR DEER KILLS.

180 yards on a small buck with a 14" 30-30 and the black tipped 110gn barns tac-tx. About the longest shot i could realistically take where i hunt. Combo worked well. Went about 30 yards.

I shot this doe at 218 yards with my Contender in 30/30 with factory Hornady Leverevolution 160 grain. The shooting house I was sitting in is visible over my shoulder down the gas pipeline.

581 yards with 6.5/.284 Bullberry Encore, 143 gr. Horn. ELD-X off a Bog Pod and PSR with a Burris 3-12X BPlex HANDGUN scope. Shot off a slight elevation in a humongous, flat cornfield with the corn about 6" high.
My first kill with the ELD-X. Massive internal damage and huge exit. Knew right then the ELD-X wasn't for me with deer. That much damage at that distance was unreal.
