Was it wrong of me to want to see how Lillie's new rifle performed before I paint it pink and wrap it for Christmas?. Got to my farm today after work, bundled up for a cold sit and when I crested the hill I saw a doe and 2 fawns laying in the field I was going to watch. Circled around to get away from the barn and she winded me. She stood up and started walking but stopped just a second too long. At 140-ish yards a 120 gr ballistic tip thru the heart put her down shortly. She only ran maybe 75 yards into the thicket.

I didn't even get a load worked up for the rifle yet. Loaded 5 rounds at the starting load to sight in then loaded 15 test loads working up in charge weight. It has zero recoil. I saw the impact in the scope and my buddy over the ridge never heard the shot. She was 100 pounds on the nose hanging
