    I don't usually post my big game kills on here but I just got my first bull over 400 yards, shattered it really.. 940 yards with a 147 ELD M from my 6.5 SAUM.
    I shot him cross canyon at a 25 degree upward angle, I hit about 3" high the bullet blew through the rear part of the shoulder and scapula bone, clipped the top of the lungs and shattered the spine.
    if you look at the photo of me shooting the bull was in the top left of the clearing near the timberline 20181020_080447_001.jpg
    Not a monster but man it feels good! 20181020_090400.jpg 20181020_090706.jpg

    Hat tip for sure.

    It took a great deal of confidence to even pull the trigger and a great deal of skill to put it in the right spot.

    Nice bull and a fantastic job getting him.

    Who says a 6.5 SAUM can't do it. I took my elk this year with the SAUM at 367 and was impressed at what it did. Congrats to you buddy!
