Well IMO youd bennifit from a larger caliber, but if thats what you have and you already stated that you have a self imposed range limmit of 300yds, I see absolutely no reason why it wouldnt work with a tough bullet. Heck Ive whitnessed a bunch of elk killed with a 264win mag. Ive seen em killed with a lot smaller than that too. Not my first choice of caliber, but ya it'll work. Just choose your shot wisley and dont be affraid of follow up shots if needed.
An elk will run off with a well placed shot from a 338 just as fast as with a .264, if he decides he wants to. Elk are funny critters. They have a knack for deciding when and where to die. (and usually its a long way away from anywhere in a deep dark nasty hole
). As long as its a legal caliber, and you know your rifle and its capabilities, and limmits, and you find a happy medium between the two. Take care in shot placement, and youll be fine. Best of luck to you.
Hey Travisch, If you edit your pic to about 1/4 that size we could see all of it w/o having to scroll way to the right.
Id realy like to see the whole thing. Just a thought. Thanks for the pic tho.
