"How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual... as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded, controlled, supervised, and taken care of."

Ok, with those kind of numbers, is that enough to handle elk? Or can it be a bit farther. With that set up what would be the limit for elk? For whitetail?
You would still have 1500+ ft.lbs of energy there at 1000 yds too. I'd say that's enough for elk if you make a good shot. There's enough energy for deer for a few hundred more yards, but the bullet might not be going fast enough to expand much further out.? What does Nosler say minumum performance velocity is on the 200 AB?
Noslers sight says 1800fps is the minimum. But I've heard that it doesn't reliably expand at that speed. Esp on whhitetail. Probably a much softer bullet would be need. That's why most would step up to the big 338s
