Re: What is your farthest kill with a 6.5 cartridge?
My son's elk, 6.5-06, 375yrds, 130g Swift Scirrocco, @2950fps, through both big front shoulder bones. Retained 82%.
My hunting partner's mulie doe, 570yrds, 6.5-06ai, 110g GS HV, @3450mv, high lung shot.
The two longest 6.5 cal shots that I have been around.
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
