Re: DOUBLE first bull elk!
No sir, It was a 300WSM. Pushing that 168gr Nosler at 2960fps.
The one I shot died in his bed like someone shut off his power switch, just went limp. Bullet passed through ribs on both sides.
The one the wife shot twice, was at longer range and the bullets did their job well. One was broadside lung shot, and one was after he layed down I had her put another one in him due to his proximity to the public land boundry. Pretty sure he was dead at the time he went down but I wasn't taking any chances with him crossing the fence.
Due to proximity of bears, wolves, mt lions we cut and ran. It was just before dusk and we didn't really have time for the ectopsy, bullet recovery, and evaluation. They were dead and thats all I asked for.
Sorry I wish I had more tech details but I was a bit overwelmed by 2 bull elk down, at dusk, and one 120lb wife that is near blind in the dark.......
