Huntaholic- DEAD is DEAD!!!!! You said it first that they died like being struck by lightening!! Who needs a pass through when you get instant performance. Unless you like tracking game or maybe your hoping it runs to the truck and dies! WHY switch????

Huntaholic. I would not have a problem taking that combo for caribou. They are a big animal but they don't take alot of killing, put the amax where it needs to be it will do the job.

My personal experiance with caribou is they lick the dust when ya hit em right. Sounds like you got a good thing going. When a bullet does not pass through, it usually means most of the bullets energy has been spent on the game. Now visualize hitting em with a FMJ. 2 holes and minimal energy is spent. Good hunting for caribou [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 300 Ultra+ 96 gr. RL25+ 178 Amax+ Antelope=

I had a problem using the same set up on a quarting deer. range less than 250 . I am not sure waht happen other than maybe the bullt shed its jacket?? Any way it went in about 1 1/2 and di a right turn followed the side of the deer just inside rib cage and hit the right side hip. Blowing bone and stomach matterinto most of the deer along the way. Dead is dead but that deer was a waste. I ended up getting very little meat that was not impregnatted with the bowl matter. I have not used MK's on deer but may try them in a 200 grn.I have seen many post on how well they work. Problem here in MI is that I like tohunt the clear cuts but you may get a shot that is close like the 250 range. Will the MK still work??or does it need to loose some velocity??


The 178's where running at 3200 and change.
