I am going on my first elk hunt in a few weeks and am also hoping to get get my first long range kill under my belt on this trip, well okay long range to me anyways. I know that true long range stuff is still beyond my abilities for now but am hoping to start to push it out there. What I am needing to know in order to set my max range shot that I am going to allow myself to take is roughly how big is the kill zone on an average cow elk? I have been hunting most of my life but up to this point it has been mostly moose with the odd deer and occasional black bear thrown in for good measure. I will be using my 110 BA in .338 Lapua with the 300 grn. gen 2 bergers so I am pretty sure that I have way more gun than what I am willing to shoot at a live target for distance. My goal is to get between 6 and 7 hundred if the vitals are a large enough target. I am shooting well under 1 MOA at the range but I know that excitement will play a large part in it when I put the crosshairs on an elk for the first time. Just wondering how big of a margin of error I have here, thanks in advance. P.S. I know I can go on a wildlife site but I would rather get the info from people who have actually shot these things in some number and give me a real life average instead of the book version.
