Re: Effective killing range?
Just one odd ball experience.
Things started out wrong and continued wrong for a first time hunter.
End result was 223 cartridge w/69gr Match bullet at 2600 fps MV mistakenly fired at a rag horn elk @ 120 yds. Said elk went about 20 yds and keeled over. Entrance wound was 224 bullet was under hide on off side. It was 100% weight retention and at least 98% shape retention. o expansion whatever!
It just barely caught the tip of the heart. The fella has the F&G report with pics and ballistics report to prove it + the cost of a decent semi-custom rifle donated to the cause.

Wouldn't propose that on a regular basis but when the planets are aligned right its kind of a done deal.
