Re: 7LRM or 7WSM This is painful!
Im just saying that you are using almost 1000 yards for your starting point, and specifically elk. That is where many would consider the 7mm to be at max for elk. You sound very confident, which is good. But if no tracking snow, bad wind call and many other things that happen in hunting. I was pushing my 7mm too far, years ago, after a dozen elk, and up graded.
