One shot kill. Looked like a rock steady rest. Know thy weapon.  Very cool.

6.5 way over gunned do to bullet terminal ballistics and trajectory.
I'm really surprised on 308 performance, when I shot my elk 80 yards away bullet went through one side both lungs and stack on other side under the skin.

It's like posting a winning lottery ticket.  You don't see the pile of tickets that didn't win.

My 30-06 maxes out between 400 and 500 yards before it doesn't have enough energy for what I feel is an ethical shot.

Personally, I admire the guy that brags about the 20 yard shot.

So, how close in yards must one be for it to be hunting? Legit question. 200? 300?

For me 0-158 yrds. I want to be able to smell them and them me.
Maybe why I'm
Not that successful in the kill dept. but I have a lot of cool
Experiences.
Just me. But I don't get the long range thrill of the hunt.
