7mmag man,
Congrats on your tag. If I was elk hunting with the 7mm Rem Mag, I woul look into the Norler accubond 160 grains, it has a nice bc of 0.531 and based on what I have read here it won't let you down at long range or short range.

Good Hunting!

I'd have to agree. Accubond all the way, put that bullet where it needs to go and you'll be set.

Congrats by the way [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Congrats. Remember a minimum impact velocity of 1800 fps is required for proper expansion for the AB.

UH OH. . . That is gonna pose a problem for me. That will limit my range to about 750 yards. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] I was hoping for a maximum of at least 1000. DANGIT Well maybe the old Sierra Matchking is gonna go through some extensive testing before I go hunting for elk. I may have to start shooting some phone books with different bullets to truly decide for myself which bullet is gonna be the best choice.

Now ya had to go make things confusing (but thanks for the heads up) looks like I have some homework to do [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img].

Re: Finally the ELK TAG is MINE!

No fear man!

Screw the MK's. This is elk! I have been hunting them every year for as long as I can remember here in Wyoming. They are very tenacious of life! Even when I shot them with my 378 WBY!

Wnat a serious super accurate super high BC HUNTING bullet? Here you go. These open up at 1200 fps. I know!

Re: Finally the ELK TAG is MINE!

Maybe I was just dreaming when I thought of shooting elk at 1000 yards with a 7mm rem mag. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I may just have to go with the accubond and set my limit at 800. DARN!

Oh well I am still gonna shoot up some phone books to totally decide for myself on what is the right set up.
