    Ron looks like you give a lot of power away with that 22in barrel in 7mm rem mag I think that 24 or 26 would have smacked him a lot harder. But nice bull however congrats

    Hmmm…wondering about that 22” barrel and 3 well placed shots. Time to go back to the drawing board. When we don’t make instant kills multiple times in a row, it’s time for some critical evaluation. Good shooting, nice animal, time for revaluation.

    Rule of thumb when hunting Elk or Stag, is shoot until he is down. They are pretty tough, shoot until he drops or you cannot see him anymore.

    Ron how much of a difference does the 7mm mag have over the 7mm 08? I can’t make my mind up which one to get. A lot of it will be for range shooting with hunting also. Seems like in my area ammunition cost about the same.
