I'm posing this for a friend how wants a Elk/Bear gun. Most likely 300 yrd max. Here's the problem, he has some neck issues so he's wanting to keep recoil to a min. I'm a overkill guy when it comes to guns so thought I'd through this out there for disscusion. Would like to keep this to people who actually have Elk hunted with the guns they are going to recomend. Thanks!
