Sorry coyboy; but I think there are more seasoned long range hunters on this site now
than a few years ago and I for one would never RECOMEND using 750ft/lbs on an elk.
The Taylor knock out Values were developed for Humane one shot kills.
They were not the absolute must to kill with just RECOMENDED based on a lot of experienced
big game hunters actual experiences especially on dangerous game.
You can kill a cape buffalo with a 22 but would you want to. I think not unless you have a death
SCI not only endorses the Taylor KO values it also recommends it's use on all big game because
Energy is not every thing but it is one of the key elements along with bullet performance ,
accuracy and impact velocity.
Nothing personal I just don't like sending a man armed with a knife to a gun fight.
