Thank you! I've shot ground hogs all summer with that rifle out to 400yds. I was really looking forward to taking a deer with it. I was satisfied with the results!

Shot a decent 8 point this afternoon with my ruger ranch rifle chambered in 7.62x39, using shitty 123gr wolf steel case HP. WORKED well, he only ran about 15 yds.

Good shooting. How long of a shot was it?

Thanks! It only has a 16" barrel.hell of a small, manuverable, accurate little rifle. Perfect for in a blind or tree stand.

👍 Congratulations, that's a nice buck.  I think it's cool you used a (not necessarily conventional for Whitetail hunting) 7.62x39 rifle with a shorter barrel too.

I used a very similar round this year. 300 BLK with 125 gr Nosler ballistic tips. 100 yard shot and he went 40 yards. nice little 6 pointer that tastes great, I actually thought he was a fork or spike at first.
