Re: 6.5-284 for elk?
Great picture! Congrats on the successful cat. I'd love to hunt those one day. In regards to the post topic, my experience with the 6.5x284 is that it combines phenomenal ballistics with a moderately high-power round, that I've seen take plenty of deer, and some elk as well. I wouldn't hesitate to use it on one of my elk hunts.
