I have no idea.  I don't have a rangfinder and I shoot instinctive.  If I had to guess would say about 60 yds.

Just my opinion Antler, kind of like a 15lb fish that turns into a 30 pounder after a couple days or the 500 lb bear, 200" deer, and 400" elk on every mountain.

1235 yard shot on a huge bull quartering toward me thru a salmon berry bush (but its ok cause the bull was right behind the bush), 1 shot, piled up right where he was at (never got out of his bed).
 THEN.. I cut him in half and had to make 2 trips......up hill.....both directions....in a snow storm     :P

First deer I shot at 320 yards... 30-06 shooting Rem Cor-loks
First Cow elk: 548 yards, 30-06 with 165 grn sierra GameKings.
Colorado Muley shot in 2007 at 380 yards... 30-06 shooting same GameKings
Buddy shot a buck this year at 648 yards
Shot my elk this year at 348 yards. 180 grn Barns bullets.
Another guy I know shot his bull this year at 1020 yards, 338 Lepua with turrets.  One shot one kill right through the heart.

Shot 5 other big game animals at less than 250.  But if the conditions are right, I have NO problem with a good rest, no wind shooting out to 400 yards...  Gotten flamed for it before, not gonna change now.
