I have 3 long range elk kills over 700 yards. I shot a bull at 705 yards and a cow elk at 735 yards with a winchester model 70 with a huskemaw scope shooting 168 gr. berger vlds with 74 grs. of retumbo at 3,175 fps. I shot another cow elk at 815 yards with a semi custom 6.5-284 winchester on a savage action with a shilen barrel and huskemaw scope. It shoots 140 gr. berger vlds at 3,100 fps with 51 gr. of RL17.
