Shot: 280 yards with rangefinder 25-30 m.p.h. crosswinds. 210 grain pointed hollowpont, boat tail shot from a .300 Ultra mag and chronoed at 3,000 F.P.S. How much drift should should be expected?
Altitude 2,200' ASL, temperature 69 f. It was a sleek spire point hollowpoint, I did not know what the ballistic. coefficient was or brand of bullet. I just watched the shot, from prone position on bipods, one heck of a scope and the other hunter spotting, who saw the impact on the Scimitar Oryx. As losing a wounded Oryx was a sore spot for the hunters and the Ranch and Oryx owner, I never asked the spotter where the point of impact was, but I suspect it was in the brisket in front of the legs and well in front of the heart.
