my bull last year took 6 rounds before going down with 300 berger out of my lapua. All 6 were in the shoulder with complete pass throughs. They are tough. Probably would have died first shot but i don’t stop shooting until they stop flopping. Mine was only 1281 yards
That was a great shot! My hunting buddy won’t stop shooting until they lay their head down. Cost him 6$ every shot. Lol.

Very nice. It’s apparent that this is a well put together rig. 5 out of 6 shots in the vitals at a mile, in hunting conditions, take an extraordinary weapon as well as an accomplished trigger guy. This is no small feat. Congratulations and happy thanksgiving.

I am reading this correctly that this elk took 5 shots into the vitals before it fell down?
No you are reading it right...not only did it take 5 in vitals but traveling vitals at a mile..winding thru the timber...at a mile...with 5 out 6 timber area shots all hitting approximately 1/3 or less MOA .... **** tuff Elk!
