    7mm Rem Mag 175gr Accubond LR Report

    I've hunted Africa, but not Zebra. When Zebra run 50+ yards after the shot, is that considered good performance? I believe so but wonder, because I was thinking the 7MAG 175 ABLR might make for a great 1 bullet hunting option for deer thru elk, near and far. Would elk generally react similar...

    What Is The Best Hunting Cartridge To 500 yds.

    Lastly, if you can spend a tad more for a hunting rifle, you should take a close look at newer Kimber Montana in 300 Winchester Magnum. I do not know how the newer Kimbers shoot, but when I hold one in the store, well it's my kind of hunting rifle. I think around $1,300 for which you get...

    What Is The Best Hunting Cartridge To 500 yds.

    Oh and a close second would be a Tikka T3X Superlight (Available from Cabalas and Sportsman's Outlet online) in 300 Winchester Magnum. On mine I added Limb Saver pad, aluminum bolt shroud, titanium recoil lug and action screws. Mine weighs just under 6lbs without scope. I have yet to shoot...

    What Is The Best Hunting Cartridge To 500 yds.

    300 RUM! Shoots Flat. Plenty Energy! I prefer Federal Factory 180 Trophy Bonded Tip for all Big Game. If you don't want to go Custom, pick up a used clean Stainless Remington 700 with Tupperware stock. I recently bought exact same rifle off Auction Site and purchased 100 rounds of Federal...

    Berger close up on game performance

    I'm obviously not as skilled as others here on this site and have only shot Big Game occasionally out to 500 yards and far prefer 400 and under. Exactly why I love my stainless Tikka T3 Lite 338 Win Mag for elk. It thumps em! Every bull I've shot in the lungs (to save meat) using 250 Nosler...

    I want a legit argument against an old trusted cartridge

    I too have fallen under the Spell of The Big 7 recently. When I first started hunting my buddy chose a 270 Win and I a 300 Win Mag. Since that time I've used just about every cartridge in search of Eldorado. A 375 H&H flattened plains game in Africa and moose in Canada. A 300 Mag killed a...

    Best Elk Bullet...

    It's amazing how much time we spend building these amazing sniper rifles for hunting, then ponder shots/bullets most likely within 250 yards! Heck, I once shot a running Bull Moose in Alberta Canada on the last day of the hunt, off-hand using my sling at 400 yards with a factory Colt Light...
