the Faukers had moved to their winter grounds so no trophy mulie for me, this is a 5x meat elk taken with the 6.8 shown at 372yds.
He looked around unsure of what had happened took a few steps and stumbled, got back to his feet took 6-7 steps and crumpled, slid about 30ft to the edge of a 50ft cliff. His body is between his rack and I had to cut 2 quarters off to move him.
2nd pic the view from above timberline. ETA- 110gr Accubond at 2880fps, same 20" 13 twist 3 groove that I took to HTRs to hog hunt with. Yeah I know the 13 twist shouldn't work in cold weather or high altitude(11400ft), tell the bull that

AWESOME!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

It didn't register what you were saying when you told me earlier.

SWEET!!!!!


Almost 400 yards with a 20" 6.8 Hmmmmmm


It was the 2880 FPS Load which was probably 2850 fps in that cold?

11150 wow you were sucking thin air weren't you

You had a 200 yard zero correct?

What was the come up for that shot? 17" or 4.5 MOA

Where did you hit him? I am guessing just behind the shoulder quartering away given the blood streaming from the nostrils

How far off was the POA/POI

You know ART is going to want that on the site for sure :mrgreen:

Once you get me the number etc if its OK with you I will post it over on ARFCOM since some over there don't play nice with you. :p




We don't need no stinken 6.5G :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Why would anyone want to dope more drop when you can use the flatter shooting higher vel higher engery 6.8.

Its all in fun :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Obviously, since the bull did not go very far, the accubond performed well. Did the accubond leave a good exit wound? Just curious because they dont always fall dead in their tracks.

What was the come up for that shot? 17" or 4.5 MOA with a 300 Z I held 1/2 mil high apx 7"

only slight quarter away, went in behind shoulder, stopped inside far shoulder.

How far off was the POA/POIwith in a few inches nothing to really aim at and they are 24" + top to bottom

It's too early for April Fool's day. Do you think the folks on the forum don't know the 6.8 falls to the ground after 300 yards? :lol: :lol: Seriously, nice shooting!

His left front leg was forward which opened up the heart area so the bullet went behind the left at mid section and shattered the right shoulder. I just quarter and debone to pack out on horses, never gut or look inside the body cavity, just too much work.
he did gurgle when I rolled him so I think it was pretty messy in there.

Good shot. Glad to see the accubond worked so well. You know the 6.5 guys have more to argue with as Mark's shot was 33 yards further. :mrgreen:

HTR and I talked about seeing who could make the longest confirmed kill at his ranch or the neighbors next spring.
