Re: 6.5x284 norma
ANY bullet or for that matter arrow or the like will do the job if the animal is harvested. Proper placement is important. I am also a firm believer in choosing a combination that will provide better terminal performance when mother nature decides to take your properly placed shot and make it not so proper. I've experienced this more than once and will probably see the same for many more hunting seasons. If one has the option and choice and has not already limited their hunting combination, consider a more terminally ballistic capable round. This should get you out of "trouble", that is a not so properly placed bullet, more often than a less terminally ballistic combination. It's the individual's choice but I believe there are better long range elk options out there and my view is backed by experience as I'm sure there are those that will state the same about the arrow and such.
Shoot CONFIDENT, Shoot SMART, Shoot STRAIGHT
