So, I've learned that OP means Original Poster. I'll remember that
I've also decided that any shot I will take on an elk of any size, make or form will place either a 300 gr Berger or 350 SMK in at least one shoulder, depending on angle, a little higher than lower.
I'll leave the puny 270 AM at home and will be carrying/ambushing w/the 338 RUM or shooting the 375 AM from a hide. Done deal! If I have the proper tag for the gender that shows up.
