78 yard 308 subsonic deer kill

I have been trying to shoot a deer with a subsonic bullet on video for a while now. It's harder than it looks. The deer, the camera, and I don't always cooperate. Bow hunting with a rifle at 78 yards. I know of no other way to explain it.

The gun is a Savage 10 precision carbine threaded by TT.
The suppressor is a AAC Cyclone.
The load is 11.6 grs of Trail boss, Nosler brass, Win mag primer, and a 225 Outlaw State bullet. Average velocity is 1055 fps.


In this video a deer dies. If you have a problem with this, DO NOT WATCH THIS VID......

Congrads Alleycat, That must have took some jugling. Did you have your camera on a tripod?

That is freaking awsome. Was that a lungshot? what scope do you have posted on your photo album with the calibrated reticle to 200?
Again good shooting and video! thanks for sharing.

It's a Pride Fowler .22LR scope. A subsonic bullet and a .22LR have very similar trajectory's. I used this scope for my Whisper until my CZ 452 came along. We do a lot of longer range shooting so I started putting dual use scopes on my guns. The shot hit in the front of the shoulder, past through a lung, the liver, and ended up hitting the back ham. I did not find the bullet.
The camera was directly above the gun between the scope and the suppressor. Notice that stopping the deer was the loudest sound.

I wish we could use silencers down here to hunt game animals. We can use them on non-game animals (pigs, yotes, ect...). Maybe that will change one day. It's pretty crazy .... I live on 650 acres and about the last 30 minutes of usable light during deer season - you can hear a gun shot about once every 30 seconds. BOOM - BOOOM - BOOOOM - it would be nice if we could silence some of them.

Excellent shooting by the way. Deer went down quick - seen a lot run further when hit by supersonics. Good clean kill.

Yeah, it's downright ridiculous where I hunt in Central Texas. 2 years ago on opening morning of deer season, I counted ~30 shots in the first 10 minutes of daylight. I say 2 years ago, because that is the last time I will hunt the opening morning of deer season on that land. It ruins the experience.

AC,
I'm going to be loading up for my 40XBT, also use a Cyclone after finished proofing starting w/10g of TB 175 BTHP I was wondering what the twist and length is on your Savage ?

Thanks.

Nice kill too.
