    A little out of focus but shows the exit wound.

    Got my first coastal South Carolina buck with my Mini Ranch Rifle in 6.8 SPC. Not the biggest deer in the world but a decent size for this area.

    One shot at just under 100 yds, 110gr Hornady V-Max, iron sights and he dropped.

    I was worried that the V-Max bullet wouldn't get enough penetration but it went right through the neck not problem with a quarter size exit wound. Not sure if I would use it at any further ranges or on a bigger deer. Honestly I would have rather used an Accubond or TSX but you can't argue with results.

    And here's his buddy that keeps outsmarting me this season.

    Wow, thats one big exit wound. Nice deer, his friend has probably been outsmarting alot of people, thats why is still alive, he is BIG for your part of the state. I do most of my deer hunting in Sumter, SC. Good stuff.

    I have been looking to get a Bison Armory upper in 6.8 SPC for my Spike Tactical lower. I want to use it mainly for hunting hogs at night with a Pulsar N550 but I think I will give a try on deer as well. Anyway nice deer and good hunting friend.
