Re: 6.5mm 140 SST for Elk???

No I do not. Got a Nosler cap though! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I feel they are good products. In this case in point I believe the Nosler partition or the Accubond will hold up better than the SST. You can add the TSX in the mix although I am still up in the air as far as their expansion capabilities go. If range is not too long the Northforks / Swift A-frames are also a superior bullet.

Here you go more choices! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Just jerking your chain.......... I have used the 180 TSX quite a bit in 300 Winn all the way to 777 yards with perfect results....... Myself and a few buddies we together have taken over 30 haed of game with TSX and have injoyed great results.
For my extreme range project I have gone to Wildcats and I expect them to perform very well'stay tuned..........
Nothing wrong with the choices that you mentioned........
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

Thanks for the input. I may try some Wildcat bullets too... how heavy can I go withough needing faster than a 1:9 twist barrel?
