Ever seen one DRT? I have seen and shot some deer, mostly DRT with 270 and bigger. Never an elk.
I have hit elk with 270, 7 mag , 300 mag and 338 win mag, heart lung, high shoulder and spine. Never DRT.
So I'm curious how elk topple over for some people but never for me...
Using a Barnes 200 gr. @ about 80 yards from a 300 Win Mag. First shot in the boiler room and he just stood there for about 20 seconds like he was waiting for a bus. I thought I missed. 2nd shot right next to the first and he stood there another 10 seconds and tipped over.
The only bang/flops I've seen are neck shots but have seen a runner on that shot too. Between running and rolling, the distance from where most were shot and where they ended up will cause you to talk to yourself.
I prefer 338's.
