I don't care if you're at 10,000 feet, shooting an elk at 1200 yards with a 6.5 PRC is asinine.I pick the right bullets, put in the time to work on my craft, I haven’t lost an animal yet. Maybe it is because I have the self control to pass on shots I don’t feel good about. Run those numbers at 10k feet which is where I hunt a lot of the time. Ft lbs of energy is over rated. 10mm shooting a 180gr has 700ft lbs of energy at the muzzle. I have killed elk with my 10mm, blew threw shoulder bone and into the vitals - crazy stuff right? Are you the guy that claims the 225 eldm is blowing up on elk shoulders at 700 yards? there is a reason I ignored you, now I remember why. I need to stop hitting the show ignored content button. You are seriously one of the most annoying dudes on this forum.
I really hope people aren't taking your stupid and irresponsible advice!
Guys like you make the rest of us Look bad
