I drew a permit for bull elk in unit 49 in Idaho. After hunting four days and seeing nine bulls I took a so-so 6x6 bull. I was shooting a model 7 Rem in 300 Rem s a ultra mag. I use a 4x12 Leupold scope with a Drop'in'sator and will go out to about 600yds.

I shot this bull at 575 yards.I did a lot of shooting from 300-600 this past summer and use a lazer range finder. I would like to set up another long range rig with a little more horsepower, maybe a full ultra mag in a 300. Thanks Outlaw.

Welcome Outlaw.
Out of curiosity, what bullet did you use for the 575 yard shot on the elk and how did it perform?

Thanks for the welcome. As far as the load it was 165gr Remington factory load for the 300 Rem. S. A. Ultra Mag. with a 4x12 new Vi x II Leupold. I put a Drop'in'Sator on it and I use a lazer ranger rangefinder. I ranged one of three bulls at 564yds as they were moving up a ridge,I layed prone shooting off my day pack. I had been shooting during the summer 300-600 yds. Outlaw

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
