    Should I get a 6.5 PRC

    Gee. It is so expensive these days. - I bought PRC ammo 2-years ago when things were normal. Insane! https://ammoseek.com/ammo/6.5mm-prc https://honorammoshop.com/product/hornady-precision-hunter-6-5-prc-143-grain-extremely-low-drag-expanding-brass-cased-centerfire-rifle-ammunition-500-rds/...

    Please school me on breaks

    Or, just use a lighter bullet: 125-gr. https://ammoseek.com/ammo/308-winchester/-rifle-125grains But, if you get a brake, the longer self-timing ones work better than a shorter one...

    Please school me on breaks

    I'd forego the brake for a .308, and maybe, if I had the money, buy a suppressor instead! Wyoming allows them, plus hi-cap mags during hunting season. (Bring your .308 AR.) The brakes I have used on a .338 RUM, and 6.5 PRC are too loud. - I sold the concussion-inducing .338 RUM, tried one on the...

    Elk Rifle Input Needed

    Your .270 Winchester can do it too. - I'd use 150-grain Nosler Partitions though. That Spitzer bullet has the same B.C. as a .308 168-gr. SMK HPBT! B.C. = .465 A lot of elk are taken every year with a .270 Winchester...

    Elk Rifle Input Needed

    :D 30-06! :D Ammo is more readily available. https://ammoseek.com/ammo/30-06/-rifle-180grains I live in Wyoming, and I am prepared for shots out to 1/4-mile = 440-yards. But all of the 5 game animals I've taken, they were all within 300-yards by opportunity. I used a 30-06 with 150-gr...

    Need some advise on a caliber for Elk hunt

    Ask them who invited you to give you a ballpark guess of what maximum range you will have where you go, then assess your equipment. - For me: Be ready for a long-shot, but it has always been within 300-yards, as far as opportunity goes. - I live in Wyoming. - I think you are good to go with the...
