I have heard a lot of people talking about killing the deer at 500 with the 207. What i want to know is if it will kill them with one shot.

Thanks,

The 207 will not kill a deer with one shot at 500 yards.  I dont think it will even kill a deer with one shot up close.

It will kill with one shot up to about 100m provided it is in the instant kill zone.
Usually takes around 5 or 6 shots  at the full 500 yards.

There is a 207 reticle for custom rifles on site here, It will only be accurate if the range is set on the custom weapon at 109 yrds as specified.
http://www.hagadoo.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&op=getit&lid=1053

One of the annomilies with the 207 is that the impact point on the trajectory is the same at 400yrds and 500 yards.

Another option is to use any standard reticle or the open sights and set the range to 0. The 207 will then be set to shoot at 400/500 yrds.

It is also probably the most innacurate calibre so grouping of the impact points is never consistant. Some of our long time hunters maintain that wind direction and strength in game will also affect the impact point.
It takes a lot of time and game skill to set up a 500 yard kill and complete it. It can only be done with the 207 on maps with a veiw distances of  500yrds and more.
Every time you hit the deer he will run and you will have to find him again and go through all the trouble of setting up the 500 shot again , in the hope that this time he will fall over. Getting in the first good shot at close range and hoping it dosnt kill him, will reduce the number of 500 yard shots that will be needed to accomplish the objective..


Old Hunters never die.They just sit around the campfire and tell the biggest lies.

If you hit them dead on the vital area 3 direct hits can kill them at 500 yds, but like dan said most times 5 or 6 are needed to drop them.
