Re: The short shot

Michael,

My brother works over there at Chimo Guns and he said they sent them a notice a while back detailing the changes in bear season. They need to change it to two bears per season, one LR and one SR. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

The pix had a BMP icon in the corner and never showed up after waiting a minute or two. Tried to copy the URL from the pic and paste it in the address bar but it was the same address as the page I was allready on.

I'll try it again and see what happens.

Re: The short shot

The pix worked this time. The first two were already displayed and it took a few for the others to load up is all.... dial up must take a while.

How far away were you, and what rifle did you use on the moose there? It's impressive how those Barnes bullets work. Can't say as I've ever recovered one but they weren't ever any quartering shots either. That one there looks like the ones I pull out of the sand at about 200 yards. I'd guess yours was around 100 yardsm aybe less if it was out of the 308win.

Here's a .338 WM 225gr XLC at about 2500 fps. (20" bbl) My buddy Eric shot his bear with at about 30 yards. The bullet went in on a quartering away shot, hit the spine and turned and stopped under the base of the ear. The petal that broke off went through the spine and severed the jugular... the bear never twitched and just fell limp.

Re: The short shot

Brent,

The moose was shot at 90 yards with a remingtom 788 308 win. Velocity of 2407. Not very fast but very effective for a short shot. Moose die very easy though anyway. He came from about 75-80 miles north/NW of Venitie which is 300 miles north of Fairbanks. well inside the arctic circle just on the edge of the brooks range. That 788 in the only gun I have ever owned that shoots those barnes bullets well. For now I stick to the SMK. The 190 SMK was devistating on those 2 bears. 2600 FPS is the velocity on those. A 168 at 2661 took the sheep and caribou on the same page and the wound on the caribou was tremendous. 3" exit at 300 yards with a 6" wound/trauma path. The sheep was to far for much of an exit wound but very effective anyway. The 190 with a 11.25 twist is AWESOME, as far as long range accuracy. That will be this years loads.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
