    Oregon Elk Hunter Kills Wolf in Self-defense

    It looks like we have some of PETA people in on this talk.. All you have to do is look at how they write and sound... But I do belong to a PETA group (PEOPLE WHO EAT TASTY ANIMALS)... All wolfs in the lower 48 should be killed..

    If you are doing 6.5 the best I have found is 6.5+284 it will take out Elk Moose Deer or Bear..And at 1,000+..

I shoot a 6.5X284 and a 7 mag the 6.5 has only 11 fps deviation for 20 shots, but my 7 Mag has 14 fps per 20 shots. Both hold under one MOA at 1,000 Yards for five shot groups with Berger's 6.5 is 140 VLD hunting...
