Thanks Shawn. You had a part in building the thunder too so it should be known that I am thankful to you as well. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Thanks for lighting up the pic Eaglet. I was hoping you were going to work your magic on that one. FOr some reason, my camera didn't flash on that pic.

No, not converting to metric. That is just the yardage my bullet hits at with it being 3" high at 100 yards.

The bull will probably go about 335"-345".

Re: Bull elk @1302 yards....

If I remember correctly, the bullet had a little over 1500 ft/lbs upon impact. I would run it on my computer right now to give you an exact answer but it is charging right now. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Yeah, for awhile I thought those bears were headed straight for 7mmrhb. They must have changed their mind about eating him when they got a whiff of spinach!!

He is 335-345" bull gross. He is 50" wide. There are bigger ones in this unit but not on this mountain. We had a late season bull hunt last fall that really knocked out some 360-390" bulls hard.
