    This is the son of Gunwerks owner Aaron Davidson and it was featured on the first episode of this TV season for Long Range Pursuit.

    Awesome!

    I like in the video how you can see the bullet trace on the two shots.

    Can someone tell me approximately what ft./lbs of energy would be left on that bullet at 1376 yards with that particular caliber, as it seems awful far for an elk size animal? I know the old timers always said they want 1500 at POI on an elk and 1000 on a deer, which may be a little more than necessary. I'm just wondering what that bullet would have had left at that distance. Thanks for any information offered!

    7mm Remington mag, 168 grain berger hunting VLD MV about 3025 (based off of their ammo specs on the website) 7000' ASL 40*F 30% humidity. 908.7 ft lbs of energy at 1376 yards.

    Thanks for the quick reply! That's a little bit better than what I thought it might be, but being 65 and of the old school of thought I don't know that I'd want to push it quite that far on a big bull. It did the trick on that shot though and that's what counts!

    No problem, i was also a but surprised, i think it is probably because of the high elevation.
