Re: max range 6.5 284
I"m a a very dedicated 6.5x 284 shooter and feel that I am proficient at long range. I choose to select one of my larger caliber rifles for elk because I have have them and prefer the improved margin of error and ability to take a shot with a less then perfect angle, should that be my only option on a good elk or comparably sized animal. If all I had was my 6.5x284, I'd use it on elk but keep my shots under 700 yards, pick my shots carefully, and feel confident. I'm probaly odd man out on this one but that's my viewpoint.
