    That 145 eld-x is designed to open up fast at low velocity. At 270 speeds, it’s likely to perform much like the 140SST. If you want pass throughs on elk from that 270, especially if fairly close,...

    I made a call I was shown on an AK moose hunt. You can use most any opened metal can, I used a gallon coffee can, gives good loud calls. I tried other sized cans, all worked, but the gallon one...

    Am lucky in that we get to shoot multiple elk most years. Most are cows, which are plenty big when mature, but we bull hunt too. Have successfully used 25-06, 260, 270, 7-08, 280 and 30-06. Some...

    Was my Grandpa’s favorite rifle. Always went bang, just fair accuracy. Be a fine deer and elk rifle to moderate range, further if yours is more accurate.

    Confirms my eld-x suspicions. Both of my kills were deer, buck and doe, both through the ribs. 280 Rem with 150?s. The damage suggested a very quick expanding pill, which is what I expected. Both...

    We’ve been putting deer and cow elk down quickly for decades with a 260 Rem, 140gr. Core-Lokts. I think the Eld-x is softer than the bullet we have been using and would avoid them for elk. I’d...

    About the same for me. I’d pay more attention to the features you need/want, than worrying if it has more range capability than you need. Extra range capability it useful and often helps plan...

    All mine 10 power and under are 40-43mm, my 12 power is a 50 and my 15 power is a 56mm. The older I get the less light my eyes let in and the less important an exit pupil much over 4mm is to me. So...

    I have a Marlin 1894C. Short, light and with 357 mag loads hits fairly hard. I’d rather not have to use a .17 HMR on coyotes or a 22 mag on cougars (unless they are treed). If I had to use a 17HMR...

    Odds are the 30 cal will push a 130 faster than a 6.5 cal, all being equal but the bore size. But I get what you are saying. It?d be fast.

    I seem to recall someone getting 5,000 FPS out of an experimental cartridge, can’t recall where. But that one may get there with light enough bullets and a 48” barrel, lol.

    Some random thoughts. There is nothing special or magical about 6.5mm for long range. It just so happens most were made with faster twist barrels to stabilize longer for caliber bullets. Some of...

    It’s just a bigger engine room than a 6.5CM. Fairly new. The thinking was a bit more velocity than the 6.5CM to easily stay supersonic to/past 1,300 yards, and with the added velocity the small...

    Well if MT takes your ideas, and I hope they do not, I suspect FWP revenue would fall a bunch. I know I’d not pay those prices for antlerless hunts, nor would any of those NR’s I hunt MT with.
