performance 165-grain GMX ammo. My confi dence in the GMX bullet is very high having recently used the 6.5 Creedmoor 120-grain GMX on a plains game hunt in South Africa. My hunting buddy Louie Russo invited me to hunt a private area with the rest of the family. A couple of the guys had the fi rst day mojo and took some nice bucks. I saw lot of does, but no bucks each time I went out. The last day of the season wasn’t


looking good from the start. It rained so much we almost called it a day af- ter the morning hunt. Giving it one


The Kimber 84L and Barnes VOR-TX am- munition made a great pair for putting sausage in the freezer.


more try in the afternoon, Louie told me he knew of a place where he had seen some bucks earlier in the season. Having already tagged out he threw on his rain gear and said, “Let’s go fi nd one of them.” About fi ve minutes into the woods


we saw several does and less than two minutes later we spotted a really nice buck. When he and the does spooked and ran my heart sank. Louie told me he knew exactly where they were go- ing to come out but we had to hustle. Louie was right; the buck rounded the little hill and slowed to a walk.


When he stopped broadside at just over 200 yards I took the shot. The buck dropped into the sage so fast I didn’t even see him go down. The Su- performance 165-grain GMX worked like I expected — my freezer will now be at max capacity. Going back to the statement my


friend made about not wanting to own a .30-06 because if you do, you won’t need another rifl e. In some ways, he’s probably right. If I could only have one rifl e in my gun safe it would be a .30-06. But if I could have more than one rifl e, I’d replace the word “need” with “want.” Lets face it, life is some- times more about want than need. I may not need another .30-06 rifl e, but after humping my pack and the 84L Classic up and down a bunch of hills, I really want this rifl e. *
