Re: 1350yd colorado bull elk
Running a quick Exbal (9000' elevation), 3320fps, and 162gr A-Max. Gives 1950fps fps at 1350yds, with around 1350ft lbs energy.
I've shot several deer with the 162gr A-Max, and even though I got all DRT's - they didn't behave particularly well up close (from a 7mm Rem Mag), but downrange, when they went below 2500fps, they did pretty well. I never shot an elk with one though.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
