    Since 1997 it’s been a Winchester M70 black shadow .300 win mag with a 4x12 Leupold VXII. I recently bought a Kimber Hunter in 280AI, I robbed the scope off the .300 for it. It will likely take over the rifle elk duty. Entirely due to weight of rifle, I’m getting old a lazy.

    My elk rifles are as follows.
    30-06 Springfield in a Ruger 1B single-shot rifle with a 4x Leupold scope on it. I use either 165 gr. Partitions or Accubonds at 2940 fps chronographed out of this rifle.

    .280 AI in a custom Winchester Model 70 classic sporter I had built. It has a 4.5-14x40mm Leupold with the B&C reticle and a Shilen SS match grade barrel on it. I load 140 gr. Accubonds or Partitions at 3230 fps chronographed out of this rifle.

    6mm Remington in a Ruger 1B single-shot rifle. It has a 6x42mmm Leupold scope on it. I use 100 gr. Partitions in this rifle at about 3150 fps. It's light for elk but I've taken one elk with it.

    I have never shot at an elk with a gun.

    But if I did it would be with this gun.

    300 WSM Winchester Silvertips

    I'm pretty sure it will kill anything on this continent and it has minimal recoil.

    I will be buying (hopefully soon) a Browning Hells Canyon Speed in 300WinMag to take elk with and pretty much everything else as well!

    I should add the main reason for my Kimber was for my daughters. The .300 Win would knock them on their butt. I mostly bow hunt elk so it’s not likely I would have strayed from the .300 if not for them. Recoil doesn’t bother me when shooting elk, I’m in dreamland when I squeeze the trigger.

    Remington model 700 LSS .300 Win Mag. Killed my bull with it this year with custom loads using sierra game kings.

    However, having said that I have killed several elk with my trusty .270.

    I hunt everything from jackrabbits to elk with my Rem. 7mm mag. 175 grain bullets for elk and 150 for everything else. It's been deadly on every elk I have ever shot except for the one I missed. I've never needed more gun or thought it was too much. Not bad on recoil either.
    My son used the wife's Rem. 270 with great results as well using 150 grain bullets.

    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
