Like others have said...... I find it funny that I acquire an LRH gun, buy very expensive glass, do the load development, practice out past 600 yards, and kill less than 300 yards!!!! This cow, and my bull almost made me feel like I was cheating being that close! Oh well, there will come a time when I will drive away from a 300 yard shot back to 600 yards just to make it fair!

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

Good going on filling the cow tag, good shootin.......Helps remind some of us we need to do that yet and this week
Dont worry the long range practice is never wasted.....Just used when nessissary. Heck I bow hunted goats year before last hard for a month, practiced with the 7mag to 700 yards just to shoot one @ 35 yards with the 7 mag=It happens

Keep practicing, I want to hear how the 7 lrx 168's do at 600+. The bullet sounds like a winner. If you have pics or a video, I'd like to see them eftills@yahoo.com.

Thanks and Congratulations.

Meat in the freezer, it looks like a pretty healthy and good sized Elk for eating.
