SS7mm.

We are all very happy with the time we spend in Nebraska as well as the game we brought back home. As you know I am a whitetail nut at heart and its hard to do any serious elk hunting when your always chasing whitetails so this was a way for me to get one big bull and then get back to my passion!!!

I would agree, I am impressed by the performance of the 338 AX with Richards new bullet design on game this large. I would have expected the standard run 100 yards and fall over type of result. Its only one field test but it passed that one with flying colors.

Speaking of long range elk rifles, hows your child behaving these days, let me know,

Lerch,

Thanks buddy.

Ya the Axis will be a bit smaller then this but hopefully only by around 270" or so!!!

I suspect we will have just as much of a challange getting him on the ground though. It will be a good time. Think the 338 AX is enough for him????

The nice thing about that axis is that hopefully we will all witness a new world record hit the ground, I am only in the top 20 with this bull in SCI. Did I say "only", need slapping for that!!!

Roy,

I felt it was just best to come right out and tell everyone from the start. Living in Montana and realizing what "REAL" elk hunting is and what goes into it as far as time, money, physical and mental strain, I did not want to take anything away from that tradition which is truely an awsome experience and in no way would I compare what we did to true wild elk hunting.

I was however very impressed with the challanges we did face and simply put, even in a high fenced hunting area, if its large enough and the elk are handled correctly, meaning never, if a big bull does not want you to see him, he will disappear.

I just did not want someone on the web trying to say that I was trying to claim this was a wild elk so I eliminated that possibility right from the start.

On the bullet testing, I want everyone to know that I did test the bullets for penetration and expansion before I ever pointed the rifle at an elk. We still need to respect everything we plan to harvest as all game deserves as instant an end as possible.

That said, without hunts like this, alot of the field testing I have been able to do with the Allen Magnums would not have been possible simply because its to difficult and time consuming to get this amount of data on wild game hunts. There has certainly been plenty of that but just as much has come from hunts like this and it has been invaluable in my R&D of my AMs and has been the main reason for being able to release so many in a relatively short amount of time. All the big rifle and ammo makers do the same thing, they just send a load of gun writers down to the big ranches in Texas and let them shoot game for a week then use all that field data to tweak their products, same here, only I do the testing myself!!! Not big enough to be able to pay someone else to do it.

If that time ever comes, I think i have a pretty good pool of shooters to choose from !!

As far as the pictures, I am pretty sure I do not have anything Hollywood would have any desire at all to see!!!!:eek: Which in my mind is not a bad thing.

If I knew how to upload video I would do that but on dial up it a bit slow going I would imagine.

Thanks for the kind words!!!
