.264 WMs First Blood

My new custom built .264 WM got bloodied for the first time early this month on a great Arizona Elk.

Took him at 500 yards using 140grn Nosler Partition running at 3050 ft/sec.

It was a great hunt with a fantastic ending.

WOW 17 years? Good thing you did not miss. Would you give rifle details and load performance please?

Re: .264 WMs First Blood

So after your first animal, how do you feel the 264 performed with your bullet selection? I would like to hear about the shot placement, penetration and overall performance.
