    Hornady Precision Hunter

    I’m going to do some tinkering when I get through this season, that’s for sure! As far as a new gun, I just might do that! I have a .300 WSM and can’t stand it, currently. Still working on finding the right bullet to get it to group the way I want. Just haven’t got there yet. It’s going to take...

    Hornady Precision Hunter

    I wish I would’ve taken the time to look at the inside of the elk last year to see the damage. If I’m lucky enough to get the opportunity this year I will definitely take a look. I went and shot my gun again yesterday with the 140gr. SSTs and there’s no way I’m going to make a change at this...

    Hornady Precision Hunter

    The superperformance SST are flying faster and hitting harder at all distances while shooting flatter. Thanks for talking some sense into this eager mind of mine.

    Hornady Precision Hunter

    I have the same mentality. My elk last year was hit all 4 times from 350 yards, it wasn’t going anywhere. I will probably stick with the SST for now as I have boxes of them on hand they’re proven for me.

    Hornady Precision Hunter

    Thanks Jim, I’m having this thought as well. The elk did die, I just worry that if I get out to 400-500 yards is the SST still going to perform?

    Hornady Precision Hunter

    Switching from 140gr SST and looking at the precision hunter 145 eld-x out of my .270 for my upcoming elk trip. Looking for some feedback. My gun like hornady ammo and I was super accurate with the SST but didn’t get pass through on my elk last year.

    6.5 Creedmoor

    Hey all, i apologize if there is a similar post buried in the forum and this is redundant. I wasnt really looking but am always open to deals and I came across a new ruger 6.5 creedmoor for a price that was borderline robbery. What is everyone's experience and or thoughts on the caliber for...

    Elk Mounts

    Got my elk back! Along with a very special picture of my dad and I. As an only child, my dad is my best friend. Being able to share these moments of my first elk this year and his first bull last year mean the world to me! Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all had a blessed holiday season!

    What did you get for Christmas?!?!

    My old man surprised my wife and I with our critters! Really happy with how they turned out! In addition, I got a few pair of hunting socks and some new boot dryers. Kids made a haul! Great time of year. Merry Christmas to all! Also, any ideas on why pictures I upload are always turned sideways?

    Future Goat Hunt

    Was lucky enough to harvest my first elk this year, which moves Antelope to the top of the hit list. Looking for a little insight on what states/tags are easiest or more available for non residents. Any help is much appreciated. YB2

    Elk Mounts

    I just got back from an elk hunt with my father and 2 close friends. We were able to harvest 2 nice bulls, in my opinion. My dad being the type of guy that appreciates and understands what goes into harvesting the animal wants us to shoulder mount them both. He shot a nice 5x6 bull last year...

    Savage Model 16 Accuracy

    Question for the gun nuts on here. A couple years ago I picked up a NEW savage model 16 .300 WSM on an auction with the intention of it being my elk gun. However i am struggling to get consistent grouping with it. I've been shooting Winchester Super X 180gr. bullets through it. Im going to...

    CO Units 12 & 13

    I am heading out to Colorado for the 4th rifle season. We are heading out a few days early to do as much scouting as possible but thought I would see if anyone on here is willing to give some advice and feedback. I was lucky enough to get a bull tag good for zones 12, 13, 23 and 24 but my buddy...
