You aint kiddin'! And some places they dont make a repelling rope long enough to get to your elk when he dies
. I fought fire in the 7-Devils, and Heavens Gate.
Hmm 22'' pipe sounds alot like my Model-70 Win XTR 30-06. For elk I always ran 180 gr Silvertips, factory stuff thru mine, but that was before I handloaded. I brought down a few elk and alot of deer, and a couple bears with it.
While I like the 180gr in an -06, I think you may be better served with a 168gr Accubond. It would realy help out on those cross canyon shots that seem to present themselves in steep country. but thats just my opinion. An -06 is a capable cartrige, so whatever you choose Im sure youll do well.
