    7mm SAUM vs 300 WSM for Elk/western hunting?

    I have taken a few moose and a few deer with 6.5CM 143 ELD-X and 300 Rum 220 ELD-X and 308win 178 gr ELD-X. I personally love the bullet. For Elk and up i think either of your choices will work well. but for a true short action i would go 7 SAUM

    A somewhat different contour question...

    someone skilled with a 3D printer could probably print a nice cover that could bolt up to it and look real clean

    A somewhat different contour question...

    you could add a NV hood from MDT and it would cover the barrel channel

    178 ELD-X and 300 WSM load data?

    What were you not impressed with about the bullet? I have shot deer with a 143 ELD-X from 100-300 yards, Moose with 178 ELD-x from a .308 win from 30-150 yards and i have shoot moose and deer with a 220 ELD-X at 650 yards and was very happy with the performance of the bullet on everything.

    Rangefinding Binocular Search

    The Sig will only give you Dope out to 800 yards unless paired with a ballistic app through blue tooth, the BR2500 will give dope to 1400 yards without an additional device. Albeit if your taking a 1400 yard shot you probably want a kestral anyways for the wind. I have used the BR2500 to make...

    Light weight tents

    4 of us stayed in my cimmaron in high elevation and got snowed and hailed and rained on and we never had any issue with not having a floor, no bugs there though which helped

    What got you interested in long range hunting?

    For me it was just a progression in shooting in general, been shooting for over 20 years and shooting at 300 yards just wasn't exciting anymore and I got the itch to start reaching out farther. Then i stumbled on this site and it really took off from there.

    Light weight tents

    I have the seek outside cimmaron, its a great tent and held up awesome in high winds up on the mountains. I have a lite outdoors titanium stove but have not needed it yet. The Cimmaron fit 4 guys and gear without the stove, it will fit 2 with the stove easy.
