Probably about to give some on this thread a trip to the emergency room with a heart-attack.

Last fall, 134 yards, 6mm Remington, 95 ballistic tip...shot it behind the near shoulder, bullet was under the hide on the opposite shoulder.





Be using the same rifle this year on 2 cow elk with 90 grain accubonds.

I ain't scared...

I don't think that anyone on here is saying that it won't kill a elk, it is just that there are better rounds out there to kill one.

A lot has to do with the shooter and his or her decision to pass up chancy shots on angles and longer ranges.

Nice shooting by the way.

Good marksmanship. Probably not the best decision, but it worked out for the elk.
Ain't scared either so I shoot the bigger calibers at bigger critters. :p
