Re: Barnes XLC for elk
Well I can vouch for the 180 XBT 30 cal performance on a 1500+ pound bull moose. MV was 2398 FPS. Terminal performance was superb. Bull walk only 20 paces. This is an animal that weighs almost twice the size of an average bull elk. Shot was 100 yards.
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.
