Re: 7mm 168 smk. Who\'s used this on elk sized game?
Actually the bear is on my wall, so I would say it killed him. Its not exactly what I would call good performance though for a bear bullet, in my opinoin. I dont want a bullet to retain 20% of its weight when it didn't even hit heavy bone. What if I would have hit that bears shoulder? Would the bullet have broke through it and got to the vitals, probly, but who really knows. Im just saying that for the fact that I usually aim for shoulders, only reason I hit this bear behind the shoulder because he was trotting. Me personally, I want a bullet for elk and bears that will be able to break through both shoulders and still exit. To me, thats great bullet performance on those size critters. I just dont want to shoulder shoot an elk with the wrong bullet and let the chase begin.....
