    .264 Win Mag on Elk

    100% of dead elk surveyed couldn't tell if it was a .277, .264, .284, .308 or whatever caliber bullet it was that hit 'em. Bullet placement is everything.

    altitude pills

    You really need to re-think your travel plans and make every effort to spend time around 5k' or so before going to higher elevations. I work in cardiology and see people every year being brought out of the high country; I don't even wanna deal with 'em anymore, it's not like getting altitude...
