Re: Lets talk bullets

Good topic and great discussions for learning LR newb. I regard bullet performance and bullet placement equally more important than caliber. I hunted most intensively in the eighties (<360yds.), so PT was a god send, and TB was much better than PH's recommended solids. BTW I see most elk bang flop more at LR on vid. I wonder if that's because they were not aware of being hunted? I know that elk has great tenacity, particular when it has looked at hunter in the eyes.

Most of us say this, but is it correct. It may be more a function of dollars. The dollars in R&D, and how much would we pay for a perfect bullet? You're involved in the process Rich, is it more a function of dollars, than technology?

Yes it is! You may never reach a "perfect" bullet for everything but we could come a lot closer than we are now...Rich

There is a lot of truth to elk being more at ease at long range. I have NEVER had one run when shot at long range even if they didn't drop right away. I don't think they have a clue what happened.....Rich
