sendaro 7mm rum 180 gr berger at 3150fps ( 3000 ele) Any idea on problem with elk to close and max range for elk. My friend hunts with me at 8000 ft. he is worried about shoots close on elk. For the most part we will be shooting 400 to 800 but hunting is just that could be 100 or 1000. Read someplace on here a guy said something about hitting a elk in the shoulder on just blowing the hide off the bone. Any info is good info.
