My First Elk

Shot my first Elk on Saturday. 401 yards with 338 Lapua 250gr accubond that retiained almost exactly half its original wieght and almost doubled in diameter. It was quartering away bullet hit a rib on the way in and stuck in the shoulder on the other side. The bull took one step and then fell.

Nicely done, those 338 certainly deal to the elk!

What are the specs of your rifle?
