    My first elk taken this past february with my 110 ba in 338 lm with the 300 OTM at 373 yards. The other pic is the exit wound, its turned sideways but you get the idea of what these things do on the way out

    I shot this guy in the chest with a 7mm RUM 168 grain VLD during the 2012 Kansas Youth and Disability season. 4 days of driving.......1 hour of hunting.

    I just switched to bergers last year.
    The elk was taken at 140 yards (spotted him and had him broadside at 990 yards but way too much wind) with a 300 winny using 190 grain vld.
    Muley was taken at 257 yards with a 280 Ackley using 168 grain vld. Pretty sold on the vld.
