Thank the lord I found my lost brethren. I too use a 7 RUM, but I load it with 175 Nosler Partitions over 92 grams of Retumbo. I've killed 3 bulls with this set up at ranges from 50 yards to 465. It's a good round and does a nice job anchoring them. it is absolutely devastating on deer.

I'm headed back to the Selway in September, can't wait.

Good luck to all.

    I'm hoping I can get out this year. I have yet to get an Elk so if I get one, it will be my first and it will be with a handgun. Just thinking about it gives me goose bumps. LOL

    If you don't like logging, then try plastic toilet paper!

    Great news everyone... I drew my Wyoming elk tag, but will probably chase them with stick and string for starters. I put together a 338 lapua rifle in case I need to go back out and extend my range a little bit. I'm thinking of building a 408 cheytac for fun...

    I can hear those bugling bulls already!!!

    I wont know where we are headed for another month or so until after the draws. I took my 15 year old son with me to CO last year and he shot his first Cow Elk. What a blast that was!
