medium range cow elk

i got a cow elk this year in colorado !
she was on the side of our shooting mountain, and opening morning, took her at 700 yards.
not a long rnage shot by some your standards, but it is about as far as i can take my 338 rum too where we hunt elk.

a 250 grain sierra gameking did the deed, leaving the barrel at 3,052 fps. i ordered a custom turret from kenton industries and it worked spot on.
hope the rest of you have a great year. we went 3 for 4. 2nd was taken at 251 yards, and the 3rd at 658 yards.


and where it hit.

    Good shooting and congratulations. Well placed shot.

    Have you used the 250g much?
