Re: Long Range Elk Rifle
I don't know Clark but I can't get those numbers down that low @ my elevation, I came out with it doing 30moa drop, 6moa windage,1600fps. That should kill an elk.
That is a tough shot that I could frankly, not make but there are some that can and do.
My dad has an old Winchester 30-06 that he was wanting to make into something different, we were thinking 6.5-06AI or 30-06AI. Sticking with a 30-06 based case will keep you from having to deal with magazine issues. I know it is no fun but inside 500 yrd the old 30-06 is really good stuff. We stoked my dads with some 210 Bergers and it really liked them.
The 300WSM and the 300RUM seem to be real popular around here also, I am trying to get my hand on a used 300 RUM so I could put together a 338 EDGE.
