After thinking about it, I am re phrasing my post. Probably not a good idea for 95% of hunters to shoot elk at 700 yards with a 243. Chances are good to start a rodeo.
I love long range hunting and target shooting. But I hear too many stories and know of many instances of people who try this without the proper equipment or practice. Its a free world though, and people can keep wounding game if they so choose.
As far as big Barnes vs little Barnes, on elk sized game I choose the SD and mass of the big Barnes.....
