I agree with this completely. I chest shot one b tag cow elk with the 110 accubond at 250 ish yards and was very impressed. I also have killed two other b tag cow elk with a 200- 250 yard head shots with a 100 grain smk but that is a different story, and would not recomend a chest shot with the 100gr SMK bullet 99% of the time, but in the perfect situation it will destroy a cow elk heart. I am not trying to toot my horn but in my defense I do own about 28 other larger rifles.
I had intensions of using the 115gr. tsx on elk but could never really get them to shoot that good. I have an employee who kills his cow elk every year with a 100 gr tsx from a 25-06.
Ya gotta be tough when yer dumb!
