Re: 338 Edge Twins strike in Washington
Good shooting guys! That's a great story.
I just got back last night with my WA spike and am going back today with my brother as he's got a cow tag. Long story short, I could've shot this guy as 420yds at 7:02, but just could not be completely sure he was just a spike as it was very dark still. I was dialed and on him and 95% sure he was a spike through the rifle and spotting scopes, but just not 100% sure. I found the same group back in the trees a few hours later and this guy took a 300RUM shot 240SMK still doing about 2900fps at 80yds in the chest--quite an energy dump--about 4500ft. lbs. I figure. He went about 20ft and expired. Front of his chest was jelly. Little sore today from packing him out of the wilderness yesterday...
