208 AMAX versus 900 pound+ elk
Looking for opinions on the 208 AMAX in regards elk. I have shot many a deer with the 178 AMAX at high velocity with outstanding results. Of course these are much smaller than an elk. The bullet is 30 grains heavier and velocities are 250 FPS slower. I am not sure if these differences make up for it's frail nature. I should mention that I am a big fan of lung area (ribs) hits. NOT shoulder bone hits. Does anybody have any experiances with the 208 AMAX on elk, bears or moose? Any experiance regarding any critters with the 208 is appreciated.
Seems like the bullet showing the best potential from my ABS 300 RUM is the 208 AMAX. I would love to use it for everything. Getting awesome accuracy and good velocities with em.
I would rather use the 200 ACCUBONDS for the purpose in question except I am not having much luck in the accuracy department with them.
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.
