    Probably 4 or 5 clicks to the right will get the POI centred...

    Did you recover the bullet. Solid or Expanding? We need to know if it performed properly.

    I watched a young guy do this to a borrowed chrony on his first shot.

    Looks good to me, nice straight wound channel, good internal damage, no fragmentation so it looks like the bullet held together perfectly...
    only question is hows the taxidermist going to sort out that exit wound?
    maybe consider a shoulder mount instead of a full mount

    It got done real good didn't it! Mounted on my wall of shame! I thought it was a great shot. Bullet was 69gr Sierra MK doing about 2800fps out of an AR. Didn't have to track it. It just took a couple of steps backward and fell over. Probably the best shot of the day! That shot cost $100 CDN.
    After about 5000rds or so you know eventually you gonna screw one up!

    I did the same thing but with an airgun, didn't make it through the steel. It certainly makes me double and triple check when using the chrony now
