Some Long Range Bulls....

OK, NOT so long range. I just discovered this site and have a recent obsession with setting up a long range gun, but thought I'd share my last few bulls. I think the total yardarge of the three is right at 230 yards!!!

Montana has been good to me the last few years!

I LOVE hunting elk in the snow! Since this is sort of a gun related site...I killed them with a Browning Abolt 06' with 168 Grain Barnes TSX or TTSX's....

That last bull is a monster, congratulations! Those Barnes bullets are great on elk.

He has nice thirds, but he has insane 4ths! (24 inches) I am ecstatic with finding that bull!

He grosses 383 3/4 and net a dead even 375 0/8.... couldn't hardly ask for more!

Are any of you getting acceptable LR accurracy out of the Barnes??

I have a light 308win that I hunt with a bunch. It loves all Barnes bullets. Everything else I have either does not shoot them well or I do not care for the lower b.c. Great bullet on elk from my experience.
