Looks like it worked. Didn't even need to coordinate. We should be promoted to squad leaders.

Don't forget the channel five news team.

My work is done here. Got more 9.3 to test.

It's my gopher gun this spring. Kind of ironic considering the thread title.

Sorry but it is too much fun poking the guys who can't imagine an elk could actually be killed with anything but a mega magnum.

I mean an elk is simply a magic creature that actually knows what it has been shot with. Wrecked hearts and lungs are not the point, it will not die until a minimum cartridge has been used.

Magic is cool.


There 'ya go right there and said very well 'lil John,wrecked heart and lungs mean nothing..I have seen the 22-250/223 and 243 used on Elk and in what I have seen,the .22-250 and 223 killed better than the 243..Just because of the user putting the bullet where it belonged..

It isn't the caliber but the shooter being able to make the shot needed without stressing out....The differeence between the 243 and 223 is so small,how could it matter if they both penetrate the same?

Lil Logcutter,

Well are going to commit to using your shiny new black gun to kill an elk this year or are you just stirring the pot? shocked

I would again like to reiterate that I would avoid shoulders if you are doing more here than just talking. cool

'lil John

I'm not just talking.I am considering using it this year but it all depends on what I see prior to hunting season and if there still there..And I have chose pretty much to use the 62 grain TSX,a bullet I am really not fond of but penetration and integrity is more important in the .223 than most if I do my job.

I never take shoulder shots intentionally..I am a meat hunter. grin

Notice I said intentionally.Chit happens...

My nephew's son Grant got to go on an elk hunt provided by the Trinity Oaks Foundation (he is a two-time survivor of gliobastoma, a very malignant brain cancer). I thought that this photo would be appropriate in this thread. The AR 15 that he used is one that he built while in quarantine with parts donated by the men and women over on the AR website.
