Greetings! I am brand new to the forums. probably in the 100's of articles my question has already been discussed, but... I have recently moved from midwest to Idaho and am looking forward to mule deer/elk hunting next season. I am planning on purchasing either a Rem 700 Tac or Varmit to hunt/target shoot with. like the flexibility/affordability of ammo and the proven track record of accuracy. anyway, here is the million dollar question. the longest shot I would "consider" is 400 yards. IF I have a nice elk in my sights at 400 yards, AND I am sure I can place the shot, will a .308 safely harvest it? and what loads might you suggest?
