That's one hell of a shot! Congrats! So I'm guessing you kind of just guessed what to dial up in your scope? Considering the g7 only goes to 1400.

I feel a little closer than a guess. I ranged him from 1345 to 1435. My last out put was at 1399. I was going up right around 1.2 moa per 25 yards. So 1399 was 36.5 I added 1.2 and shot at 37.7 moa for 1435.

Re: 338 Edge on bull elk 1435

That's awesome!!

I think a lot more bullets do what that one did than we think, we tested a lot of bullets this year that were thick in the nose so they needed worked on to get them to open even at 2000 fps impacts but we found they would blow the nose of then tumble, it's a violent happening judging by the water jugs blowing up. I also think this is why we can see cal holes in and out but carnage in the middle, at any rate dead elk is dead elk

I agree completely. I think a lot of weird stuff happens. I would really like to see the elite hunters on game. I shot a mule doe, she was dead but blew through at 850 yards. pencil hole in and out.

Nice job ! ! Was hoping to get a mule deer out at some long range this year. But did not get a chance to score.

Awesome pics.

God Bless

Re: 338 Edge on bull elk 1435

Great shot and nice story. What is the twist on your barrel? I am getting very good expansion from my 338 otm's with a 9.3 twist and running almost the same velocity as yours.
