Re: First Elk taken

Very nice! I get a bit more athletically impaired each season. A 14 lb rifle has it's place, but hiking much and a featherweight 30-06 will work.

My 2 cents on the bullet would be neither surprised or, disappointed. My experience with the Accubond, and other bonded bullets is contrary to the popular advice to drop down a weight, with the front end expanded well they don't drive as deep. If the petals at the front come off they will go deeper. A friend has a couple of 225 Accubonds fired into small whitetails from an Edge he's recovered. The old 210 Nosler partition in 338 penetrated better.

The 200 Accubond is my first choice in the 30-06, but the "harder" bullets will more likely exit, and exit holes are desirable in my opinion. It's just trade offs.
