    Good for you! But, why wasn't there a 300g Hybrid making that kill? ;)

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    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.
