Another one for the .338 AM AKA Grim Reaper…

Unless one of my buddies needs the use of my Kirby special it should be done for the year. My dad took this spike this morning at 550 yards!!! Got the gun all set up put the 76-year-old fellow behind it and let it rip one shot entered behind the left shoulder and out behind the right.

Funny thing is I found the empty jacket on the hide the lead must have kept going. I guess when you have that much energy at 550 things just happen.


the hole in

    That is a fine shot by your Dad. I am hoping I can do as well when I am that age.

    Is that a regular, normal kind of elk? He looks peculiar, like he is part German Shepard or something.

    That's a special "green grass" elk.

    They have been known to be darker, smaller, and friendlier than the larger, "dry grass and timber" elk most of us are familiar with, especially this time of year.

    Great looking meat though!

    Congrats to your dad!

    Congratulation on a nice shot. Which bullet was used and what velocity are you getting?
