I just shot this cow elk Wednesday (01-26-05) in my backyard so to speak. It is the Mt. Timpanogos late season cow hunt.
I was shooting 180 Nosler Accubonds, and as you can see, they worked pretty well even at long range. The bullet went through both front shoulder bones and was literally stuck to the hide on the far side! Not bad for a non-ultra mag huh??
I ranged her at 820 yards with my Leica 1200 LRF and then dialed 14 minutes into my Leupold Vari-xIII 4.5-14x40 and let it fly. The cow never knew what hit her! The first shot broke her shoulder/leg bone and she wasn't gettin' up after that one! It's not BEYOND BELIEF, it's just beyond ordinary. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
