    Just to get things strait , I'm the same JDJones that posted above as JDJones75 but something happened

    Anyway , I diden't say that I woulden't shoot Elk at long range with the 308 just not with the 180 bullets , if the angle was right I would shoot an Elk at 500yds with a 308 and a 165gr Nosler Partiton.

    Chris Matthews , haven't see you around here lately , glad to se your back

    Nice pics, Good job. Speed goats are a hoot. Not a prob reference the wording poorly. I tend to do the same every now and then myself. I post something and then go back and look at it and think oops thats not quite what I meant.

    I hunt elk quite a bit. There are lots of them here in Idaho. I usually prefer a heavier caliber. .308s will certainly do the job but they are less than ideal at longer ranges. Funny thing though, through the years I have killed more elk with a 270 and 150 Nosler Partitions than anything else. Go figure.

    I just feel sick when I see an elk that has been poorly shot by someone. One badly wounded cow I put down had a huge hole in her front quarter. Looked like she had been hit with a varmint bullet. Bullet never made it to the shoulder bones.

    I prefer a heavy constructed bullet in a 7mm mag/ 300 win class, minimum, for long range elk.
