i got a cow elk this year in colorado !
she was on the side of our shooting mountain, and opening morning, took her at 700 yards.
not a long rnage shot by some your standards, but it is about as far as i can take my 338 rum too where we hunt elk.

a 250 grain sierra gameking did the deed, leaving the barrel at 3,052 fps. i ordered a custom turret from kenton industries and it worked spot on.
hope the rest of you have a great year. we went 3 for 4. 2nd was taken at 251 yards, and the 3rd at 658 yards.

and where it hit.
