The Elk Rifle

I've mentioned I wanted to elk hunt this year with my M1903a4. A Vintage Sniper Rifle I built for the CMP GSM Vintage Sniper Matches.

I have a lot of good elk rifles but I want something different this year.

I been shooting it in practice and getting good zeros but I went to Cody for the CMP's Wyoming Vintage Sniper Match to see what it was capable of.

At 300 yards (normal hunting range) it was outstanding, 600 wasn't as good (me not the rifle) but even my bad shots would still have been in the vital area of an elk.

Now to replace the match loads with 190 Berger's. I've already found a load that matches my 168 A-Max loads, same zeros.

Now the hard part, setting back and waiting for Oct.
