Re: Defensive Edge success story

Waitaminute!!!! I thought that a puny little .260 couldn't kill elk? I thought you needed to launch a huge bullet from a platform that singed your eyebrows off when you fired it?

Anyway, now that my illusions are shattered, Congrats! Nice rifle, great shooting, and nice bull.

Re: Defensive Edge success story

I'd be happy to shoot a deer or elk at long distances if and this is a big "if", I was positive of perfect bullet placement. A good heart lung shot no issues, drift into the shoulder and your day would suck in a large way especially on an elk. Slip that Amax or similar bullet into the crease and life is good.

Re: Defensive Edge success story

Since John was there and I was not I will have to defer to his version.
