Re: Finally My First Elk!
I forgot the most important information!!
Temp was 10* F
station Barometric pressure was 23.19 inHg
Approximate impact velocity was 2225 fps
approximate impact energy was 3078 ft lbs.
Dialed 3 MOA up
Dialed .25 MOA left for spin drift.
Wind was about 2-3 mph from 8 o clock, thats an extra 1.8" of drift at that range so i didnt adjust for the wind.
Time of flight was .468 seconds.
I am very satisfied this season with the 280 grain LRX, 2 antelope at 486 yards one ran 15 yards the other i hit in the neck and was drt, the runner had 1 1/4" exit and the neck shot one had an exit of 2 1/2". A mule deer doe at 330 yards stumbled around for 20 yards spraying blood out of the 1 3/4" exit. And this elk at 378 yards DRT with a 1 1/4" exit.
