    Good friend of mine pulled a PA elk tag and scored this nice bull. He took him @ 200 yards and that was that. He is a savage nut and took this one with his BA. Funny thing is he has a 338 lapua in the 110 BA and a 300 win in the 110 BA and the one he used was his 10BA 308. I thought he was a little under gunned but he put a 300 yard limit on the 308 and his dad was carrying his lapua if he got a longer shot. I think it's a different looking bull and a PA prize.

    I've seen some trophy size elk up in Benezette. We have some huge bulls. What bullet load combo is he running in that BA10?

    He doesn't load. i load his lapua for him but the 10ba in 308 shoots a ragged hole with hornaday superformance 168 's
    he shot straight through it and it didnt even make it out of sight before it dropped.
    old bull he was on his last year the check station guys said
